2018 Summer Reading Program


Music is the theme this year as we present our 2018 Summer Reading Program! Planned activities will include weekly entertainers for subjects such as juggling, Legos, science, puppets, animals, magic, and of course music! There will be workshops on yoga and nutrition, Lego Robotics, VEX, art, chess, and even a Shakespeare Workshop with the USD Theatre Department. The library will also be partnering with the National Music Museum for the month of June! The Summer Reading Program is open to young people, preschool through young-adult, with programs, prize drawings, Storytime sessions, reading clubs, and more. Summer Reading kicks off Monday, June 4th!
