Summer Reading

A Universe of Stories

The 2019 Summer Reading Program will begin in June with programs for all ages and prizes for reading.  This year’s theme is A Universe of Stories, with a focus on space.  Programs will include storytimes, STEAM activities, arts & crafts, Paws for Reading, family movies, a Youth Art Show, and more.  DTDL will also host a variety of fun and interactive children’s performers.
