Summer Reading

Summer Reading 2018 is June 4th-July 28th!

The Bingo cards are back! We have summer reading programs for children, tweens, teens and adults. You can preregister beginning on Tuesday, May 29th to receive your Bingo card early, but you can't start until June 4th. Sign up for a Bingo card and earn prizes for reading this summer! You have the entire month of June to register. 

You can register for a Bingo card at Benton or Bryant. However, all programs and storytimes are happening at our Benton location this summer. Our Bryant location is closing on June 22nd for an interior remodel.
