Adult Summer Reading

Adult summer reading? YES! Each summer we have a program just for adults that is fun and easy. Summer is always a great time to catch up on reading. Reading lets you relax and escape. It makes you think and be informed. It can even reduce your stress level. If you’re a parent or care-provider for children, reading is a great model. Children who see their role models reading want to read and be read to! This summer, explore a Universe of Stories! Here’s what we’ve got planned!
