Published on August 23, 2023.

Thank you to all of the people who helped us make this year’s Summer Reading Program amazing!

SBCPL registered over 350 Summer Reading participants and had 2,419 children, teens, and adults in attendance to in-person events over the weeks of Summer Reading. The 90 programs included performers, nutrition classes, escape rooms, crafts, STEAM activities, and Bookmobile. The Library would like to thank all of the children, teens, parents, grandparents, and anyone else who attended these programs as well as all our performers, staff, and volunteers!

Special Thanks to all of our Summer Reading Sponsors & Helpers!
