Kids may register for our Summer Reading program at the show or in the children’s department. Readers and listeners may set their own goals. How many books do you hope to read or listen to this summer? Read anything you’re interested in. Keep a log of titles you’ve read and we’ll provide small incentives to encourage you to your goal. At the end of our program, kids who read or listen to at least 10 books may choose a gift book to keep.
We have many events scheduled this summer, including concerts, crafts and a magic show. Check out our flyer Build a Better World Flyer 2017, or visit our calendar for all summer reading events for Kids.
