Summer Reading

Summer Reading Program 2018

Reading Takes You Everywhere!

 
End summer learning loss this year with the Summer Reading Program! Libraries will be emphasizing healthy minds and healthy bodies through programs for all ages. The theme of the 2018 Summer Challenge is “Reading Takes You Everywhere!” Programs and materials will have an emphasis on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. Children and teens are encouraged to stop by their neighborhood branch and sign up for the challenge. Free books and prize drawings encourage reading throughout the summer. Fun performers are scheduled to keep our youth active and engaged in the months between school years. Some highlights this year include magician Tim Mannix, E & M’s Reptile Family, bubble magic from Wild Child Adventures, wacky science from the Discovery Center, and more! Registration is required for some events. Please call branch before for more information.

Don’t miss the Summer Challenge Kick-Offs at the Tulare Public Library, June 9th from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and at the Sunnyside Library on Thursday, June 14th from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.!
