Read for Fun!
The summer reading program at your local library is blasting off this month and is chock full of family-friendly events. Your kids will love the performers, story times, movies, arts and crafts, and more. Prizes will be given to kids logging their reading pages to complete the “Read for the Win” Summer Reading Challenge. Get started now at Fresno Library.

Free Books!
