Science drives summer reading fun

Fizz Boom Read is here! Kids can be super scientists as they experiment, explore and discover with our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM)-based summer reading program. Science-themed summer reading for teens is all, and only, online. And for adults, One Book, One Oak Park features Moonwalking with Einstein, a nonfiction title on the art and science of remembering everything. Learn more about summer reading for everyone ›
