Summer Reading is here!

The 2023 Summer Reading Program begins on Saturday, June 10!

Preschool    Grades 1-5     Grades 6-12     Adults

The theme of this year’s Summer Reading is ‘All Together Now’, and there will be a series of programs for all ages, including intergenerational programming.. Some of these events will be held outdoors, some on the Library’s front lawn under a tent. Early sign-ups mean an enhanced opportunity to read and earn more points for prizes, such as tickets to the Crayola Factory in Easton, PA, Six Flags Great Adventure, and gift certificates form local businesses.

To register, please visit the Ask Us Desk or the Information Desk at the library, or visit https://summitlibrary.readsquared.com.

You can also download the Readsquared App on Google Play or the App Store.
