This summer our theme is "Build a Better World!" We are building a better world by offering you and your family many opportunities to participate in fun activities. Not only will we have the library camps, we also have fun evenings planned for families — watch for dates and times of these special events. You will also be able to take our reading challenge: Who can build the most and the tallest buildings just by reading? Come check out the details of how you can start building this summer.

Plus don't forget about the prizes, guessing games and other challenges that are offered this summer to help you reach your goal of building the tallest or the most buildings this summer at the library!
