The Franklin County Public Library’s Summer Reading Program kicks off with week one, June 19-23, at the Franklin County Public Libraries. Summer Reading is an annual program that brings children, teens, and families into local public libraries for reading and activities. Both library branches will have fun activities for both kids and adults during this program under the theme of “All Together Now”. Library programs are free and open to the public and participants do not need a library card to participate.

This year’s slogan, ALL TOGETHER NOW, is a perfect slogan to bring everyone together no matter their age, socio-economic status, political affiliation, or location! Everyone can all find a book to fit their interests and maybe make some friends in the process. Centered around Kindness, Friendship, and Unity, this year’s theme comes with endless opportunities to enjoy the library’s resources and connect with the community.
