Summer is a time to engage with your library to be ready for the next school year. Have fun and help prevent learning loss with summer learning at your library.
With Read Write Draw and Best Book Ever, kids and teens share what they are reading and win a free book to keep this summer.
Books offer readers the amazing ability to enter another world through windows and doors, or to see ourselves reflected in a mirror.
With audiobooks and podcasts, bring your reading anywhere you can listen, while building vocabulary and comprehension skills.
If the child in your life is in a reading rut, we have some suggestions to get them out if it, including finding new ideas in our book lists and rereading favorites in new formats.
The school year starts soon, but the library is here to support learning and discovery year round with events, new books, and tools for school success.
