2024 Summer Reading Program: Giveaways, Raffles, and Special Events! (July 9 – August 24)

Summer Reading is a national celebration of books and readers that goes on all summer long. This year’s theme is “Adventure Begins at Your Library” and we’ve got a ton of free events, giveaways, and activities planned for readers of all ages, including:

Giveaway Backpacks, packed full of free art supplies, crafts, books, and more. These bags will be available for pick-up at the library’s Celebrate Summer Party on Tuesday, July 9. While supplies last!

Raffle Prizes for participants in our All Ages Reading Challenge. From July 9 to August 24, every day that you read is a chance to win a prize! Pick up a reading log at the library’s main desk, circle each day that you read, and collect raffle tickets for your chance to win one of our phenomenal prize baskets! Newborns through seniors are eligible to win, and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, August 27.
