Summer Reading 2023 is Find Your Voice!
Each year the East Hampton Public Library sponsors fun and educational Summer Reading Programs for children, teens, and adults! Our children’s and teen programs are designed to work with our local schools’ required Summer Reading to help prevent summer learning loss and to motivate kids and teens to not only read, but to engage with their community and try new things. And why should kids and teens have all the fun? We welcome adults to participate, too! Our Adult Summer reading program also offers the opportunity for fun, community engagement and fabulous prizes! The more raffle tickets you earn, the better your chances of winning great prizes!
