Summer Reading

Youth Summer Reading:

Children can sign up for the Summer Reading Program at Adriance Memorial Library or Boardman Road Branch Library until July 31, 2017. Each registered participant will receive a reading log, a Build a Better World passport, and a canvas tote bag (while supplies last). Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate, gift (while supplies last), and chance at a drawing for a very special prize.

Children can check in with our Youth Services staff weekly to receive an extra ticket for the drawing. Each book read will earn a black sticker to help us eclipse our “sun”. Receive an extra ticket for the drawing when you complete activities in the passport.
