Get ready to go wild during the Mercer County Library System’s annual Summer Reading Program “Tales & Tails.” All branches will host a range of free activities and events for children, teens, and adults to encourage and support a love of reading. Participants also can win small prizes for reaching their reading goals.
Participants can pick up their first prize any time after July 12th, and their final prize any time after August 16th at their local branch.
The broad motif of “Tales & Tails” provides a context for exploring animals and stories, nature, culture, and science, as well as developing programming that demonstrates how libraries and reading can expand your world. Early learners, kids and teens will have a blast with activities that make learning and exploration fun! Special launch events will occur around the week of June 21. Programs are free and open to children of all ages and abilities. Local Friends of the Library groups, associations and advisory committees generously provide funding for year-round youth programming.
