Summer is here, and with it the Virginia Public Library Summer Reading Program! From June 1st to August 5th we have free events and activities at the library for anyone who wants to have fun. If you are in Preschool through 12thgrade and are reading books this summer, you can sign up to win awesome prizes at the library!
Boy Reading About Being a Mountain Climber
Being part of the Summer Reading Program is easy! Come in to the library to sign up and pick your reading goal for the summer. Then log the books or pages you’ve read online, and come in to the library to claim your prizes. In addition to standard prizes, you can get entries for weekly drawings – the more you visit the library the more possible prizes you win!
We have lots of wonderful events going on this summer – so many we can’t list all of them here! Here is a good way to know which days will work best for visiting the library:
