Summer reading has come and gone again too fast! It seems like only yesterday we were planning all the wonderful events for summer and ready to get started and now we’re just happy to take a little break from programming before starting again in the fall. We’re already thinking about next year’s summer reading program, which will be “Adventure Begins at Your Library”.

Our summer reading program wouldn’t happen without the amazing community support we see from local businesses and organizations every year. With your support, we are able to provide books, t-shirts, prizes, programming supplies, and performers throughout the summer. We also wouldn’t be able to have our amazing programs without all the wonderful volunteers that helped from weekly crafts to tea parties, Water Wars, and more! In more ways than one, we truly fulfilled the promise of this summer’s theme “All Together Now” with support from our community.

So thank you to all of our sponsors of the summer reading program and we hope we can continue to rely on your support next year:
