Pre-registration is required. . There is no fee. This year’s Summer Reading Programs will run from June 4 to August 11, 2018, and all ages are invited to sign up and join in the fun. Experts say children read more when they listen to or discuss books. Children who join the summer program keep their minds in the learning mode and enter school in the fall ready to learn.
