Summer Reading Club begins this week!

Summertime is here and it's the perfect time to go to your library, cool off, and... join the Texas Reading Club of course! Read 8 books or more to receive a certificate and goodie bag. Participants don't have to attend any SRC events, but they're just too good to miss out on!

Who can join?
All children from infants to age 12, and all teens ages 13-19 (or those entering the 7th grade). Even if you're too mature to join, be an example by reading with or alongside children and teens. Get caught reading!

Registration begins all day Saturday, June 7 and ends July 12.
