The Summer Reading Program runs Saturday, June 1 through Saturday, July 27. Sign up and keep track of how much you read to earn prizes and entries into a drawing. Visit the library for a list of special events happening all summer long.
Kick off the Library’s Summer Reading Program with a pool party at Riverside Park’s Aquatic Center on Sunday, June 2 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Patrons should arrive by 6:30 p.m. in order to be admitted to the party. All pool rules must be followed. Space is limited and registration is required. Registration for this program constitutes registration for the summer reading program.
Tweens and teens ages 8 to 14 can compete in Live Clue: Video Game World on Thursday, June 6 at 6:00 p.m. Characters from video games have all ended up in a single video game world and someone has been murdered. Can you figure out who did it, with what weapon, and where? Registration is required and space is limited.
