Live In-Person and Zoom Events
|School is out for the summer (yay!), which means it’s time for Summer Reading! This year’s summer reading theme is Oceans of Possibilities and we’re so excited to share it with you.|
What is the summer program?
Every summer, Wilder Memorial Library offers a summer reading program to help kids and families stay connected to reading all summer long. Summer reading is a community tradition that promotes reading for fun and lifelong enrichment.
This year, our summer reading program includes a treasure map, the Beanstack app, prizes for time spent reading, story time, drop-in crafts, free passes to state parks and historic sites, a family fun concert, and more!
