"A Universe of Stories" Summer Reading Challenge Performers

A Universe of Stories Summer Reading Challenge 2019

Each summer we host a summer reading challenge for children and adults to help encourage a life-long love affair with books.  And this summer is no different as we celebrate reading with "A Universe of Stories," and as you can probably imagine our theme this year is space-themed.  Which is perfect as it coincides with the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11's moon landing and the iconic words, "The Eagle has landed," spoken by Neil Armstrong along with the more famous, "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." 

 

To help us celebrate the love of reading we have invited some special performers to visit our libraries, listed below is a schedule of those and where they will be in attendance. To register and log your reading, please visit ccld.readsquared.com
