Heath Lee – Library Manager

The 2017 Summer Reading Program (SRP) has begun, and it doesn’t end until July 31 st . 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. SRLS promotes literacy and continued learning across all age groups. Expect fun times and plenty of programs for all ages this summer. Check our Facebook page for more SRP details.
