Summer Reading 2019

Slogan 1

We have finalized our plans for Summer Reading 2019!

Starting Saturday, June 1st, you can sign up for the first week of Summer Reading programs, June 24th-28th, by calling the library or using our June event calendar here.

Then starting Monday, June 17th you can sign up for the rest of the Summer Reading programs by calling the library or using our event calendar. Start reading up on all we have to offer by visiting our July event calendar here so you're ready to sign up for everything you're interested in!

Remember, all our programs are open to both Riverdale residents and our friends from surrounding communities and will probably fill up quickly.

Then be sure to come to the library on Monday, June 24th to sign up in person for the reading and prize portion of the program; this way you will get your own reading logs and be eligible for weekly prizes!

We're excited to see you this summer! Happy Reading!
