Summer Reading 2019: A Universe of Stories

Summer Reading 2019 has ended! Thanks for reading with us - see you in 2020!

June 1 - July 31

Sign up at your branch starting June 1! This year's theme is "A Universe of Stories," so all summer long we'll be hosting some out-of-this-world events and classes for kids, teens, and adults! These events are made possible by our awesome Friends of LCPL group.

Check Out the Calendar

And of course, we have some stellar prizes procided by the amazing LCPL Foundation. This year, every branch will have a drawing for a $50 gift card that you can enter along with our usual system-wide drawing for grand prizes! And of course, reading a certain number of pages will earn you other, smaller prizes along the way. Read on to learn more!
