2016 Summer Reading Program

2016 Summer Reading Program: On your mark, get set...READ!

Get ready to whip your mind into shape with Loudoun County Public Library's 2016 Summer Reading Program.

From June 15 to Aug. 28, we're encouraging you to ramp up your reading, discover more of the library's resources, and enjoy the wide variety of special programs available to patrons of all ages. You can get in the game by picking up one of our challenge cards. When you complete all the tasks and turn it into your local branch, you'll be entered into a drawing for a free Kindle! They'll be four winners at every branch.

So have fun and get ready to exercise your mind. 

Here's a peek at a few of the fantastic programs coming this summer, many of which are made possible by the Loudoun Library Foundation. (Click on each event for times and locations)
