Summer Reading 2015

“Every Hero Has a Story” is a reading incentive program to keep kids excited about reading and providing free family-friendly events throughout the summer. Studies show that kids who read during the summer have less catching up to do when school begins again. Registration for kids, teens and adults is open at any time throughout the summer, at all library Branches: Casper, Mills, Edgerton and the Bookmobile. Join the action and have a blast this summer as we celebrate heroes of all types—from superheroes to everyday people who do amazing things. Read 20 minutes a day (or be read to), celebrate with super performers and earn prizes for your reading power. Summer Reading runs May 26-August 31.
