Summer is a time to sit back, relax and have some fun! What better place to kick off the summer than the library!
Here are a few of the fun, family-friendly activities we have scheduled to keep you busy from June to August!

Summer Reading Program

No matter what age you are, the library is ready to give you prizes for reading! Simply pick up a Summer Reading packet at any of our branch locations to get started! Alongside this summer-long program, librarians have scheduled some scientific events for all to enjoy!

Sunset Summer Concert Series

Concerts are scheduled every Friday and Saturday evening at 7pm in the County Library Amphitheater. We are bringing back some local favorites and welcoming some great new artists to the lineup. There will be something for everyone’s taste with tribute bands from Roy Orbison to Pink Floyd. As always, the concerts and parking are free, but get here early; with this year’s selection of performers, seats will fill up fast.

Tell Us Your Story Contest

Kids and Teens in grades 6-12 are invited to create a story and share it with us using the elements around them! These elements can be a paper and pencil, an app on your phone, a video camera, a computer program...combine the elements you use every day into a tale that will share your creative ideas with others. Once you have your story, share it with us via our website or social media! At the end of the contest, all participants will be invited to a screening of the entries in the County Library Auditorium where prizes will be awarded to those who created the best story!
