Summer Reading Program for All Ages

In the summer of 2019, 16,000 libraries across the country will celebrate space exploration in their summer reading programs. The slogan “A Universe of Stories” was chosen by library professionals to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story.

This summer learning program will coincide with NASA’s 60 years of achievement and its celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.

Adults 18+

Adults look forward to summer as much as children do. They use their summers to relax, take vacations, and catch up on reading, which makes summer an ideal time to offer adult programming.
For every library program you attend, a ticket will be put in a raffle  for one of the three Fire HD 8 Tablets. You will need to be present for the drawing of the tablets.
Every 5 tickets you complete, you will get to pick a book from the Book Nook.

Remember to stop by VPL’s service desk to pick up raffle tickets for the adults and a reading log for kids.
