This year's slogan is... Adventure Begins at Your Library! 

No matter what your interests are, you are sure to find something at the library! This year's slogan highlights the many adventures that take place at the library. Whether you are looking for a book, meeting with a club, or doing research, your library has it all. 

Register for the Summer Reading Program, complete a level, and win prizes! What counts as reading? Read physical or e-books, magazines, listen to audio books, shout out road signs/billboards you pass in the car, or even when reading the label on a cereal box!
