Get your brain and body moving with the library’s sports-themed summer learning adventure, “Read for the Win.”
 
This summer reading program is tailored for babies, toddlers, preschoolers, grade schoolers, and middle schoolers. No tryouts needed—we want all kids on our team, from babies through kids entering ninth grade this fall.
 
Through books, songs, stories, and lots of play, we’ll tackle challenges, build skills, and run toward opportunities for discovery.

Discovery Kits

Ever wanted to learn how to weave, or learn French, or practice writing your first novel? Maybe you want to learn about the stars or practice your own computer programming with Raspberry Pi?
