Summer Reading Program for Children

The Summer Reading Program encourages children and families to read all summer long, wherever your journeys take you. You can read books from the library or from home.

Pre-readers participate by having others read to them. When older children read to younger ones, they both get credit for the book.

Who is it for?

Children from birth to age 11.
