The 2017 Summer Reading Program doesn’t end until July 31st. This year’s theme is “Build a Better World”, and SRP participation provides great benefits to young children in the form of continued literacy awareness, social involvement, and experiencing new ideas. However, SRP is not solely for youngsters. The SRLS SRP encompasses all ages. We offer activities for young children, teens, and adults. Expect fun times and plenty of programs this summer. Check our Facebook page for more SRP details.
