Summer Reading Goes Steampunk

Summer is almost here and with that comes the Summer Reading Program. This year`s theme is Gear Up for Good. We will be getting Steampunked out at all the branches and Central Library. We also have a new component this summer that allows you to read away your library fines. It is called an Earn to Learn card. We want to give everyone under eighteen a fresh start.


 There is more to do too. There is a series of films being offered at branches across the county just for you. Also you can`t miss the Steampunk Inventors Journal Workshop. The journals are definitely one of a kind. You need to register for the journal workshop, but not the films.


Here are the films that will be shown next week, beginning Tuesday, June 5th. You can click any title to see where else it will be playing this summer.
