This year our Summer Reading theme was: A Universe of Stories

We are so grateful to have the support of our Program Fund and the Mavis Munger Children’s Fund to help deliver our summer reading programs. Without the support, we would not be able to offer the opportunities, collections, and prizes that we do!

Participants tracked their reading and added books to our totals to unlock GROUP PRIZES! All books read and reported to the library were added into our group reading totals for Community-Wide Prize Events!

Shoreham Readers read 2063 books in 2019!
