This year, Fort Bragg Library is participating in the A UNIVERSE OF STORIES! Summer Reading 2019 program from June 8th through August 10th. Those participating will be required to sign-up so reading can be tracked. Sign-ups begin at our Summer Reading Kick-Off on June 8th. Once you’ve signed-up at the library you’ll receive a log to keep track of your reading. For Kids and Teens, there will be incentive prizes along the way. For adults, once you’ve completed your log, turn it in to the library for a prize. Continued reading for kids and teens after their log is completed will earn spins on our spinner for an end of summer raffle prize. Full details for all summer reading activities and programs will be available at the library.

On June 8th, Summer Reading kicks off with a day of fun at the library beginning with an outer-space themed craft and face painting from 10:30-12 followed by Nature Joe’s Petting Zoo @ 2pm.

Details for Summer Reading are still in the works so check back often to see what’s planned. You can also visit these links for the age appropriate category you’re interested in. We’ll be updating each page as plans click into place. So get to reading and have fun!
