imagine your story: fairytales, dragon, mermaid

Summer Reading Program

As we turn the page to summer, it’s time to Imagine Your Story. Write your own tale of adventure, where you decide who’s the hero and whose dreams really come true. Explore all things fairytale, fantasy and myth —  with dragons, mermaids and unicorns. Travel through the many realms of Library Land to complete the quests and win prizes.

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 include the library. Reserve books online and pick them up using our curbside service, attend virtual workshops and storytimes, or download audiobooks for summer vacation.

Enjoy virtual programs — storytimes, book talks and performances by our favorite storytellers and puppeteers – Chad Crews, Porkchop Productions, Suzette Hawkins and Tim Sonefelt.

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

Join us for virtual programs by authors Mary Alice Monroe and Tom Poland, as well as, calligraphy demonstrations by Pauline Cruse and Celtic mythology by Lt. Colonel John Miles.

Ask a Librarian

Summer Reading Program

Ask a Librarian is a service available to patrons via phone or email (online chat coming soon). Not only can librarians provide book recommendations for you and your child, they can help you in so many other ways — they can actually help you find answers to the world’s most fascinating questions. For example, they can …

  • Find answers to questions for research in any area of study from aeronautics to zoology
  • ‎Locate information so you can develop a business plan, find sales leads to grow your business and research your competitors
  • ‎Identify alternative approaches to health care and wellness, focusing on perspectives of complementary, holistic and integrated health
  • ‎Research businesses by industry or segment and company size; employment statistics, mapping and traffic modeling
  • ‎And yes, even help with the tough homework assignments students have in elementary, middle, high school or college

So, the real question is … What are you going to Ask a Librarian?
