The adult summer reading program has been added.

The summer reading programs run June 1 through the end of August, with sign-ups ending Aug. 15. There are no fees attached.

The 2015 Summer Reading programs for kids and teens have a heroic theme: “Every Hero Has a Story” for young children 0-5 years and children 6-11 years; and “Unmask!” for teens 12-19 years.
