Prescott Public Library 2021 Summer Reading Program

Every year, the library looks forward to planning and preparing for eight weeks of summer reading fun.  The benefits to participating in a summer reading program are many, including helping kids to make reading a lifelong habit, maintaining and increasing reading skills, and generating interest in the library and books.
