Our 2020 Summer Reading Program is offered to children ages 5 and older and will look different than previous years due to COVID-19 and social distancing to protect everyone’s health. In addition to our weekly online entertainers on Zoom and Facebook, we will mail prizes to each child who reads 100 minutes or more each week.

Our online kickoff event will be on June 27th and our last week will end on August 9th.
