Summer Reading Program

The library facilitates Summer Reading Programs annually. 

The program theme and reading prizes change each year. Registration dates vary, but usually coincide with the last day of school, according to the APS calendar. Summer Reading Programs are free and anyone can participate. Patrons aged birth to 18 years may register for the Youth SRP. Patrons aged 18 and older may register for the Adult SRP.
