• Early Readers’ Story Hour will be for children who have just completed kindergarten and first grade.

• The Young Adult Book Discussion Group is exploring the supernatural this summer. Teens, 13 years of age and older are invited to take part in this fun group.
• Relax and Read is a reading and reviewing program for teens who would rather read and write than discuss. Teens write short reviews of any books they choose to read over the summer.
