Summer Reading Program...

Sun

... is almost here! Summer Reading Program (SRP) starts on June 4 and ends August 7. SRP promotes the use of imagination and continued reading during those hot summer months! In celebration of SRP, the Children's Department has a lot of activities planned throughout the summer, so make sure to check out our Events Calendar often. We have some old guests, new performers, year round programs for our 6 and under crowd, and maybe even a few surprises for our tweens! We can't wait until summer and we'll see you when school gets out!
