Arlington Public Library Youth Services

The Arlington Public Library Summer Reading programs help kids and teens avoid "summer slide" and reintroduce them to the joy of reading for pleasure. These programs can help motivate parents and kids to read or listen to books together, and they can prompt adults to explore new books and authors. Free Prizes are awarded to individuals that complete the Summer Reading Program. This year's programs are tailored with the "Find Your Voice" theme and goes from June 1 to September 1.
