Join in for free Summer Reading Stations to help combat the summer reading slide taking place one week in June (12-17) and one week in July (17-22) from noon-4:30 each day.
Children pre-K through 8th grade can stop by and grab a book, STEM activity, snack, and water to enjoy reading this summer. Children are welcome to visit sites each day to get another book to enjoy.
