Summer Reading: A Universe of Stories
Each summer, the South Burlington Public Library offers a Summer Reading program designed to encourage children to continue reading throughout summer vacation so that valuable reading skills won’t be lost. This year, in conjunction with the Collaborative Summer Library Program, the theme is “A Universe of Stories!” We’re delighted to tap into the mysteries of space to bring you programs and presentations for patrons of all ages all summer.
Summer Reading runs from June 15 through August 10. Registration is simple and easy!

There will also be blank tickets near the raffle ticket bins in the front of the Library. Just fill out a ticket, including the book's title, for every book you read! Then drop the ticket into the bin that corresponds to the prize you'd like to win. All tickets will be entered into the end-of-summer Last Chance Mystery Drawing.
