What’s New · Celebrate National Summer Learning Day and Read On @ Your Library!

Join us June 20-21 for special celebrations in honor of National Summer Learning Day!

June 20 Activities

To celebrate National Summer Learning Day on Friday June 20 from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m., customers are invited to join Main Library staff for a two-hour “Read In” in the Reading Garden Lounge. Sign up (provide your name and preferred time) for a five-minute time slot and read out loud! The Library will have a selection of books available or customers are welcome to bring their own reading material. Readers will receive a small “thank you” prize and can enter to win a free session of 3D printing at the Library! Readers and listeners can log any time they spend at the Read-In as part of their Summer Learning reading time. During the event you can also:

  • Watch a demonstration of our new 3D printer
  • Sign up for our Summer Learning Program by the end of the day and be automatically entered into a drawing to win a Kindle Fire HDX 7" tablet!
  • Write your favorite book quote on a fan

In addition to the "Read In," here are some other programs taking place at the Library on National Summer Learning Day:
