Summer Reading Program

Build a Better World

Build a Better World
June 12 - July 28, 2017

Youth Services is celebrating creativity, construction, dreaming big, and taking care of our world with this year's Summer Reading Program. Programs, games, activities, and prizes will be part of the fun!

Opening Day
Monday, June 12 at 9:30am - 9pm

Youth Services will be giving out a special "Build a Better World" tote bag to every read-to-me and reader who registers for the summer reading program on opening day. Come in and join the program, do an activity, and pick out something to read.

The Elk Grove Park District will be in our lobby from 9:30am to 4:30pm. If you are here during those hours, visit their table, show their staff your drawstring backpack, and they will enter you into a drawing to win two (2) daily admission passes to Rainbow Falls or Pirate's Cove.

Weather permitting, spend some time outside on our Opening Day Story Trail. Follow the story pages and our book will lead you on a walk around the library.
