Congratulations summer readers!

Summer Reading 2020 is officially over! Despite a global pandemic, babies, kids, and teens still imagined their stories and logged over 335,400 days of reading. Over 9,000 young readers completed the summer reading game by reading for at least 45 days.

The Summer Reading program also offered volunteer opportunities for youth in grade 6 and up. 230 youth volunteers dedicated their time to promoting the program in their communities and encouraging readers throughout the county!

Check back next spring for information on Summer Reading and volunteering in 2021.

Summer Reading is supported by gifts to The Library Foundation, a local nonprofit dedicated to our library's leadership, innovation and reach through private support.
