Summer Reading 2021

Summer reading is a beloved staple of library services for children. It’s one of the greatest tools in fostering a love of reading in children of all ages!

2021 Summer Reading: Tails and Tales

The library’s main level is open for browsing and borrowing during slightly reduced summer hours. The downstairs Makerspace and History Lounge are open for crafting, reading, studying, etc. — please check availability with the circulation desk before using either meeting room.

Virtual programs will be held via Zoom, and most in-person events will be held in the downstairs Makerspace, but some outdoor events may move to the First Presbyterian Church. Check the program location before you go! Masks and social distancing will be required for indoor programs.

Visit our Summer Reading calendar of events here.
