The 2021 Summer Reading theme is “Tails and Tales”.  Dates run from June 5 through August 13.

All programs this year are “Live and Outside” in the Locust Street Park.  Please bring chairs or a blanket for your group.  Families should sit together.  You can access summer programs below.  In the interest of community partnership, we have also included are the Edible Classroom Garden Camp, River Park programs for children, Music in the Park, and Movies in the Park.  THE CALENDAR WILL UPDATE FREQUENTLY IN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS!  If you have questions, please email  We owe a huge debt of gratitude to D.H.
