NPL's 2017 Summer Reading Program

Summer reading isn't just for kids. There are categories for all ages - from babies to grandparents, and everyone in between! To participate, simply register online or at any NPL location June 24 through August 5. Then read books and track your minutes (for youth) or write a quick review of your books read (for adults) to earn incentives or prizes - it's that simple!
