Teen Summer Spark

Teen Summer Spark#SPPLSummer

Read and/or complete activities to earn a free book and get entered into drawings for prizes. Stop by your neighborhood library to get started!

New Name!

For many years, it's been called Summer Reading Program. We've renamed it Summer Spark because we want to engage kids more deeply, encouraging learning and activity in addition to and beyond reading.

Family Read Down

During the month of June, you can get rid of fines and fees by reading in the library - $1 off for every 15 minutes of reading. Ask for details at your nearest library.
