Summer Reading Program 2017


Summer Reading@ the Libraries of Foster

Click here for our Summer Reading flyer listing all our free, fun events to inspire summer reading!

Every summer, libraries across the nation participate in the Collaborative Summer Reading Program, and the theme this year is “Build a Better World.”  The programs offered by the Libraries of Foster and GENEROUSLY supported by CAST, are here to engage our children and young adults in inspired and innovative ways that promote reading and the joy of lifelong learning and libraries.

We have an ambitious and awesome agenda of programs for kids of all ages. Check this page and our Calendar for the latest events postings.
