For our 2021 Summer Reading Program we renew our commitment to providing a fun way for children and their families to make reading part of their summer. Our program begins mid-June and wraps up on August 25. Stop in the library (or visit our new Tamworth Mobile Library, coming soon) to pick up a reading log to get started. By bringing in your reading log each time you visit the library, you’ll earn a popsicle and other prizes.
