Readers of all ages can earn rewards based on the number of books they read or time they spend reading, and children can participate in a variety of fun and exciting programs at the libraries in June and July.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call the library system’s Communications Office (281-633-4734) or the branch libraries.
