Summer Learning Club

Summer Learning & Reading Club returns for 2022! This year's theme is "Oceans of Possibilities"

For children babies through grade 8, our Children's Summer Learning Club is for you! Remember, just because your child can't read themselves, doesn't mean they can't participate!

To be eligible for prizes:
1) You must register either in person or on ReadSquared, or by calling 203-574-8213
2) Turn in your completed reading log on or before 3 p.m. on August 12
