Unmask! (Teen Program)
Teens … Discover great books for your summer nights (and days). Check in at your local library to find out about great workshops … watercolor painting, cartooning, improv, crafting, animation, poetry, and magic.

Escape the Ordinary (Adult Program)
The adult summer reading program is designed to encourage adults to read during the summer months while creating positive publicity for the library.  Over the summer, adults can explore new genres or interests which gives the library the opportunity to highlight books of interest.  The adult summer reading program also offers an excellent model of lifelong learning and reading to the children participating in their own summer reading programs.

Summer Reader and Teen Reader Wallet Cards
Summer readers, children and teens, may earn wallet cards for free admission to the listed Rhode Island attractions by participating in the summer reading program at their local public library. Requirements for earning the card may vary. Inquire in the children’s or teen services departments. Read Wallet Rules.
