Summer Reading Program June 6–August 13

Join us for a Superhero Summer with reading programs for kids, teens and adults. Experience the library’s first comic convention, FanCon; Pop-up Comic Studios featuring amazing artists in the library’s Marketplace; fun and engaging programs for all ages; and interactive elements in Kids’ World. Register for the reading programs starting June 6.
 
 
Pow! Bam! Kaboom! It's a summer of superheroes. Sign up in Kids' World or on the bookmobile to get a book log to record your reading goals and keep track of your progress. When you are finished, bring the log in to select a book of your choice. Come in to the library each week to play Punch In!, make a craft or enter our Game of the Week raffle. For infants to age 12.


 

This summer in the Hub, we’re working on harnessing our superpowers! You’re one step closer to earning your stripes each time you use your super mind to review a book/movie/CD, gain new skills at one of our events, engineer a project in our DIY space, stretch your creativity by submitting a film to the Teen Film Fest or volunteer to be a real-life superhero. Focus on one or all of these powers and successfully complete them 5 times to be eligible to win prizes like free Chipotle, App Store gift cards and the grand prize – a pair of tickets to fly for real at iFly: Indoor Skydiving! For teens in grades 7-12. Sign up now.


 

Take our interactive online quiz to discover your reading superpower, then get custom reading recommendations based on your results. Enter for a chance to win in our Summer Reading Program prize drawing. Add your own reading suggestions to our in-library display, and read like a superhero this summer. Take the quiz here or in person at the library. For adults age 18 and up.


 

Pop-Up Studio
Celebrate superheroes and comics in four unique hands-on art studios popping up in Marketplace this summer. On each date, the library transforms into a comic studio hosted by a different visiting artist. Drop in to watch them work, ask questions and try your hand at superhero and comic-themed projects designed for all-ages to enjoy. Join us for one or all. Best for ages 6+. Learn more about each artist and session.
