Southbury Public Library's Summer Reading Program

Imagine Your Story! Southbury Public Library Summer Reading 2020

Monday, June 29, 2020-Friday, August 7, 2020

The Southbury Public Library Youth Services department is thrilled to announce this year's Summer Reading theme is Imagine Your Story. Are you ready to get creative, get active, and have fun this summer? Things may look different, but we're committed to bringing you quality programs and resources to enrich your summer experience. We believe Summer Reading encourages children, youth, and families to continue reading and develop life-long learning skills. Gain self-confidence, a love for reading, and a sense of accomplishment, increase motivation and maintain reading skills - all while having fun!

Online registration will be available for all children ages 0-18 starting Monday, June 29. The program will run until Friday, August 7.
