June 21 – July 31

Join us for live animal presentations, cooking classes, storytimes, book clubs, and so much more! For all ages!

Many programs will be meeting in-person, outside this summer. However, we still have options to be completely virtual.

Registration is required for all programs and events.


How to track reading and activities:

You can track your reading online with READsquared! The online tracking website allows you to register for programs and log your reading. As you add your reading time and activities, you’ll earn digital badges, certificates, and be automatically entered into prize drawings!

Or you can stop into the library and pick up a paper tracking sheet. You’ll still earn all the same prizes!
