Teens and young adults with developmental delays can take part in a special summer reading program series happening at the George Latimer Central Library, 90 West 4th Street, in downtown Saint Paul. Youth 12 years and up can earn badges and books by reading about and trying activities focused on their interests on four Friday mornings beginning June 27 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Participants are welcome to bring their personal care attendants, parents, or 1:1 aids to these free events, but registration is required.

The event series kicks off on Friday, June 27 and will include making art and learning how to earn badges.
