Summer Reading Program

Build a Better World

Reading Takes You Everywhere!
June 11 - July 27, 2018

Youth Services is celebrating the power of books to take us to new places, teach us about different cultures, and make our imagination soar. Programs, games, activities, and prizes will be part of the fun!

Opening Day
Monday, June 11 at 9:30am - 9pm

Youth Services will be giving out a special Reading Takes You Everywhere tote bag to every young adult 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 tote bag, 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.
