Summer Scares Reading Program Kickoff

Wednesday, June 14, 2023

Join us for a frightfully fun kickoff to the Summer Scares reading program for patrons ages 12 to 17. Tour our collection of scarily good books, but don’t look too long or you may never leave. Pick up a reading log and a take-home craft to start your summer reading journey. Turn in your log on July 20 for a chance to win some freakishly fun prizes.
