The 2019 Summer Reading Program runs June 15 through August 17. The annual program includes a reading challenge with incentives to earn a free book and T-shirt, chances to win awesome grand prizes, and fun events for all ages. From music to magic, virtual reality to ventriloquism, storytimes to science experiments – there’s summer fun for everyone!

Summer reading is great at any age, but is particularly important for young people. Kids who don’t read during the summer can lose up to a third of what they learned in the previous school year. Summer Reading Program activities aim to engage young people and families to help prevent the “summer slide” and build a lifelong love of reading.
