• July 28 on Facebook: “Underwater Adventure”: Learn about local marine creatures from Feiro Marine Life Center staff.

Summer Reading Program

The theme for the 2020 Summer Reading Program is “Imagine Your Story.” This summertime celebration, which encourages children to keep reading during the summer break from school, features a reading challenge with fabulous prizes, and a multitude of virtual events for all ages.

Library summer reading programs have been shown to help alleviate the “summer slide” by providing access to books, enrichment activities, and encouraging young people to keep reading. The 2020 Summer Reading Program runs through Aug. 15.

The Summer Reading Program is supported by the Friends of the Library at all four NOLS libraries.
