New for 2020

Summer programs are all virtual! There will be no live/in person programs.

To participate in Summer Quest (SQ): sign up online beginning June 1. Read any book or listen to any audiobook between June 15th and August 15th and record it in Beanstack.  Earn badges for reading and completing activities throughout the summer program!

Children who participate in summer library programs keep their minds active and enter school in the fall ready to learn and ready to succeed.
