Forbes Library SUMMER READING
HOW TO REGISTER FOR SUMMER READING
There are two ways to participate this year:
SPECIAL SUMMER READING EVENTS
Each week this summer, we have a different theme and special performer related to it! Click here to see all of our special Summer Reading events, and be sure to register for them!
SUMMER TAKE-HOME ACTIVITY KITS
Starting June 19, stop by the library to pick up a free take-home activity kit containing supplies and instructions to make a fun project based on that week's theme! We'll have kits available for ages 0-5, 6-12, and teens. From beaded frog keychains (see left) to pollinator seed paper, there's a different activity planned for all ages every week, so come visit and get crafting!
SUMMER READING BOOKLISTS
Stumped for what to read while school's out? Check out our fun Tails and Tales-themed booklists. We've collected great books for ages 0-5, 6-12, and teens. You can click on the book's cover to be taken to its record in our catalog and easily place it on hold.
