Summer fun and the library go hand in hand! Whether you're getting ready to hit the beach with the latest bestseller or take advantage of all the special activities and programs, the library is the place to start!

This year’s Summer Reading Program, A Universe of Stories, runs from June 24 through August 3. As always, we're offering weekly challenges, prizes, and activities to keep everyone -- kids, teens, and adults -- reading and growing all summer long! We hope your excitement during the summer reading months inspires and motivates you to connect, discover, and grow year-round!

We would like to thank our sponsors -- Baum School of Art, Burger King, Chipotle, ComicMasters, Crayola, Just Born Inc., Kalahari Resort, Lehigh Valley Zoo, Philly Pretzel Factory, Polish Water Ice, and Putt-U Mini Golf -- for their prize donations and their continued support of the library and literacy initiatives.

Children ages 2 through entering 5th grade are encouraged to grab a reading log, attend free events, and check-out books to participate in the Kids' Summer Reading Program.  Every 2 hours (or 120 minutes) spent reading is a chance to spin our prize wheel and win fun basket prizes. Meet the summer reading goal and win a free book and grand prize entry for 4-day passes to Kalahari Resort Waterpark!
