Summer Reading


This years’ Summer Reading Program runs from June 1st–July 31st and will be completely online! Reading and math challenges are available on Beanstack and events will be posted both on the website and facebook. See more about our events here.

What is Summer Reading?

  • Summer Reading initially began to keep school-aged kids reading throughout their summer vacation.  Over the years, however, it expanded to keep kids learning and engaged as well as just reading. Summer Reading has expanded to include all ages – birth to adult. After all, we all deserve a little summer fun!
