Build a Better World

Build a Better World!

Summer reading is for all ages! This year we’re learning how to build a better world with books and events about art, science, fitness, literature, and summer fun.

Summer reading kicks off June 26, 2017. Stop by your nearest NOPL location to receive a packet of goodies and sign up for exciting programs for kids and teens, or sign up online (below) and pick up your packet the next time you’re at the library. Track the books you’ve read to earn prizes!

View, download or print the 2017 Summer Reading Events Guide that includes events at all NOPL locations! You can also view the events on our online events calendar and use filters to view programs for specific ages or interests.
