Build a Better World

June 12 - July 29

How it works: Every child or teen is to read (or be read to) for 20 minutes, five days each week.

Starting June 12, kids check in weekly online or at the library. Everyone who meets their weekly goal receives a small reward, and up to 6 tickets to win something bigger. Starting July 17, all children who meet their summer goal receive a paperback book of their choice.

Attendance at all of our events earns each child additional tickets to drop into the prize bags!

Teen Lock-In

6th grade & up. Teens are invited to our annual after-hours event where we connect with authors and other teens around the country. We'll have delicious pizza, ice cream treats, and a new escape room where teens will solve puzzles in order to "get out" and survive impending doom! Registration and parent permission required.
