summer reading tails and tales

Summer Reading Program

Dive into the depths of Summer Reading fun. Experience Tails & Tales while discovering awe-inspiring stories about animals and nature. Challenge yourself to try new things and make a positive change in your community and for our planet.

Summer Reading helps build literacy and language skills, prevents the dreaded summer slide for school-aged children, encourages teens and adults to experience the joy of reading and so much more. As you make plans this summer, don’t forget to attend a virtual program or stop by the library to check out books.

It's not just for kids. Adults can participate in Summer Reading, too.

Summer Reading for adults kicks off with headliner Chef Jeff Henderson, author of the New York Times bestselling Cooked, award-winning chef and star of his own Food Network docu-reality show. Henderson shares two decades of life lessons that he gained on his redemptive journey from drug dealer to TV celebrity chef to nationally acclaimed speaker. Authors Kim Boykin, Lewis M. Steel, Mary Martha Greene and Daniel Harrison also join us to discuss their latest work. Programs may be presented in a virtual format.
