Summer Reading Program 2020 – June 1-July 31

READ EVERY DAY!

Our 2020 Summer Reading Program will look a bit different this year, as our libraries work to offer safe activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
One thing has not changed: Our goal to encourage our communities to READ EVERY DAY!

You may tell us on Facebook, on the phone with a staff

Read
Read alone, to a child or pet, or with a friend!
Read anything, anywhere, all summer long, every day!

Share
Talk about great books, websites, magazines, comic books,
and more with a friend, colleague, or library staff member.
We will be providing many opportunities to share this summer.

SUMMER PROGRAMS & EVENTS

This summer, our goal is to keep our patrons and staff as safe as possible, while also offering great programs for ALL AGES.

This summer, all First Regional Library Events will be VIRTUAL PROGRAMS shared through Zoom. All events are free and open to everyone.

If you have never used Zoom before, here is a great Zoom tutorial video that will show you how to access our summer programs.

We will be hosting many of your favorite summer presenters: live animals, magicians, stage performances, science experiments, and more!

Each week, we will be presenting virtual storytimes with your favorite First Regional Library storytellers!
We have missed you, and can’t wait to share stories, crafts, songs, and fun with you!
