Our Libraries Offer FREE Summer Programs for All Ages!

Enjoy free programs that will explore music, instruments, games, and dance movement through books, activities, art projects, and more.

Gain knowledge and understanding of various music and fine arts, including some they’ve never heard of before. They’ll have the opportunity to challenge themselves, try new things, and work together to set records.

Children of all ages gain the opportunity for hands-on learning. Every child, whether a sports fan or not, is sure to enjoy this summer’s program.


Learning is Fun!

We have free programs all year — from puppet shows and storytime for preschoolers to summer reading programs for children of all ages including high school students. Most of these encourage learning along with activities, crafts, and special guests throughout the year – including Summer Library Programs!
