Kids Summer Reading Program

Readers of all ages will explore space and astronomy this summer as the Boulder Junction Public Library presents “Universe of Stories” during their children’s summer reading program. Activities may include story time, group games, crafts, art projects, science and engineering experiments, performers and more.

The 2019 Summer Reading Program starts Wednesday, June 19 and meets every Wednesday from 10:30 to 11:30 am through August 7.

The Summer Reading Program is open to young people, preschool through 8th grade. Families are encouraged to participate in the program together. Children 7 and under do need a parent or guardian present for the program.
