*Lisa with the City of Show Low Public Library about the Summer Reading Program. It provides fun and exciting opportunities for children and teenagers to explore the world of reading and lifelong learning while helping to prevent the “summer slide” kids’ experience being out of school. Summer Reading features exciting events, such as Pawsome Readers (read to a therapy dog program), Craft Events and Special Events. We also offer Summer Reading opportunities for teens and adults!

This year's theme is "Libraries Rock" and be an online summer reading program.    You will be reading lots of books, attending fun activities and playing fun games all to earn points towards badges!  Earn badges by participating in reading and activities.  Points will earn you tickets which will be entered into a drawing for great prizes.  The more points you earn, the more tickets you receive, the more chances you have to win!  Stay tuned for more details as summer reading draws closer.  Click here to visit the summer reading website for more details and to register online starting June 1st.

You may also visit the library for a brochure or call for more information, (928) 532-4070.
