Hundreds of Delta County kids participate in our Summer Reading Program every year.  This community-sustained program inspires children, teens and adults to read and explore through exciting and relevant programs, reading incentives, and special events throughout the summer.

Why is Summer Reading Important?

  • It helps keep kids from losing the ability they gained during the previous school year.

  • It engages reluctant readers with activities and programming related to reading.

  • It encourages reading as a lifelong habit.

  • It provides opportunities to socialize with peers in a positive setting.


The 2020 program, "Imagine Your Story," includes storytelling, adventure, fairy tales, and mythology. The eight-week program offers engaging opportunities for all ages.
