There is no cost to get a library card, check out library materials, participate in the summer reading program, or attend events.

Summer Reading Challenge: Read (or be read to) for 500 minutes this summer! For every 10 minutes you read, you get a sticker to add to your universe of stories sheet. Earn 50 stickers and claim prizes at the end of the summer.


A free book, a small bag full of gemstones, a safe toy for younger children.

Here are our book and author recommendations by age/grade level. These are just suggestions. Readers can choose anything they want to read! Being read to by a grown-up counts too.
