The Summer Reading Challenge for 2018 begins!

This year's Summer Reading Challenge will be different. In past years we selected the book for to be read and tailored our programs to it. This year YOU, the patrons, will choose the book from six great reads that fit the theme, Libraries Rock, and our programs will have a broader appeal. We encourage you to read all six books, but it is up to you. At the end of the program, you will have a chance to vote on the best book, and it will get pride of place. Enjoy the new challenge.
