Summer Reading 2021

This year’s Summer Reading theme was “Tails & Tales,” and our program went wild with stories about animals, both real and imagined.

Summer Reading ended August 14.

Finishers can pick up a prize at their library or bookmobile stop, or via curbside pickup. We look forward to reading with you next summer!
