2022 Children’s Summer Reading Program

Children from Pre-K to 5th Grade can now sign up for our Children’s Summer Reading Program.

Complete a reading log every week to earn ocean themed stickers and entries for grand prizes! We also have a ton of fun events planned around this year’s theme of Oceans of Possibilities.



Thursdays @ 10am – for ages 2 and up.

Stories, rhymes, and crafts!

Yoga and Mindfulness

Wednesdays @ 4pm – designed for ages 4-8, but children of all ages are welcome.

This fun and calming program starts with a picture book to set the theme before moving into breathing exercises and simple yoga poses. Children learn to listen to their bodies and how focusing on our breathing can help us with big emotions.

Giant Aquarium Contest

Your sculpture will be displayed in the children’s department and judged by patrons. This year there will be a prize for the PreK-K age group and the 1st-5th grade age group.

Voting Period: August 1 – August 5.

Winners will be announced on August 8.

Please pick up your project by August 26 or it will be recycled.
