Kids look forward to wonderful lazy days of summer all year. Then, after about two weeks, the "I'm bored...!" complaints can start to set in. Let us help keep them busy and learning! The Summer Reading Club is an eight-week program for both children and adults that is designed to keep kids' skills sharp over the summer break, provide opportunities for family time, and encourage a love of reading in all ages.

Register now for the 2018 Summer Reading Club! Forms are available at the Library or here. The program runs from Saturday, June 2 through Saturday, July 28. As soon as you've reached a goal for your age group, stop by the Kennedale Library to choose your prize!

When your nose isn't buried in a book, join us for these exciting summer programs:
