Programs

The Children’s Summer Reading Program is to promote reading in the summertime so children can maintain or advance their reading levels. Student success can be achieved by taking advantage of this program which includes other recreational activities during the summer. Entertainment is provided in a safe environment for kids to explore their world by being involved with these supplemental programs provided. Prizes and incentives are given to promote this program.

Special programs are given for school-age children. Schools are invited to visit the library for tours, instruction, and stories. Please call at least two weeks in advance to arrange for a visit.
