Summer Reading Club
This year's summer reading club will be out of this world!
Liverpool Public Library and 16,000 libraries across the country will celebrate space exploration in this year's summer reading programs. The slogan A Universe of Stories was chosen to help inspire children of all ages to dream big, believe in themselves, and create their own story.
This year, the Summer Reading Club coincides with NASA’s 60 years of achievement and the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.The goal is to encourage reading for all ages during the summer months. You are invited to read as many books as you like, participate in exciting programming, win prizes and more!
