Summer Reading 2020: Imagine Your Story

Begins In: 17d 7h 36m 59s

July 6 - August 1

We've all been working hard to keep each other safe, so the library is asking just one thing of you for Summer Reading this year:

HAVE FUN!

That's it. No counting pages, no clocking time spent reading. Just read what you want and have fun with it.

Use the form below to let us know you're on board and we'll enter you in a drawing for a grand prize. The Friends of LCPL outdid themselves with the prizes this year, so be sure to sign up. All ages, including adults, are welcome! 


Of course, one of the most fun things about Summer Reading is sharing activities with friends. Once Summer Reading begins, we'll be posting activities to match the "Imagine Your Story" theme right here - so be sure to check back!

Read something you loved? Send a book review to kids@lcplin.org and a librarian will share it with all of our other readers!

Puss in Boots loves books!
