The Summer Reading Clubs are online and on-the-go! Log your reading on the Library's webpage, meet the goal and collect a prize at your local Library branch.

The goals for Summer Reading Clubs are :

-- Early learners - children who are not yet reading independently - can join the Read-To-Me-Clubs, and listen to 20 books.

-- For school age children, the goal is to log eight hours of reading.

Reach the goal and win a prize!  Prizes can be picked up at the branch where you registered.
