Harmonize Your Summer Reading

Turn up the volume on your summer by working the library into your activity calendar with more than 300 events (June 1- Aug 20) that will keep you tuned-up until fall!

Every Tuesday and Thursday from May 29 – Aug 16, you can get down at Readapalooza and Stories & Crafts 10-11am. Kids 5-12 years old will rock out during Readapalooza with inspiring and exciting stories, crafts and activities. Kids 3-5 years old will groove during Stories & Crafts with stories, songs and activities that will sound like music to your ears when they ask you to read it or listen to the book, again.

Your library is Curiosity Central this summer! This is just a sample of all that’s going on. The Adventuremobile will be around town with material to check out and musical activities for the Curiosity Club. Also register for the summer reading and experience program.

If you don’t have time to create your own reading playlists, below are some recommendations from library staff. As you will probably notice we had some fun naming our book lists with song titles to fit in with this summer’s musical focus. Check out even more summer reading lists for all ages.
