Summer Reading at the Roachdale Public Library

We are  having  a hybrid Summer Reading model this year. We know some families may not be able to or desire to meet in person, while others are eager for this  experience.  ALL registered participants will receive the packets which contain supplemental activities to do throughout the summer as well as a book to keep for each topic. If you are participating ONLY with the “to go” program, you may pick them up at the library during regular hours. You may participant in any/all in-person events. The evening events will be different from the daytime events! (Registration deadline was May 20th – you can still join in-person events! You do not need to be registered to attend our morning, afternoon, or evening events!!!!!)
