Children’s Summer Reading

Thank you so much to everyone who made the 2019 Summer Reading Program a success!  We hope that everyone enjoyed a great summer at the library and beyond.

Take a look at the infographic below to get an idea of just how busy the library was during the summer and how many children we were able to reach with this program.  While statistics certainly do not tell the whole story and are not the only measure of the program’s success, these numbers are certainly interesting and give us a broad idea of how the Summer Reading Program is doing.
