The theme for the 2020 Summer Reading Program is Imagine Your Story, which celebrates fairy tales, mythology, and fantasy.
This year we are introducing a new Summer Reading Program resource: READsquared! This digital reading program is designed to allow families to record their summer reading virtually through the website or app.
You can register as a family or as individuals. Registering as a family allows an adult to log their children’s reading more easily, without needing to log out and back in for each child. To register as a family you will need to register an adult first.

Due to circumstances surrounding the pandemic, the schedule of programs for 2020 Summer Reading Program have been redesigned for virtual formats!
