That’s the theme of this year’s Summer Reading Program, which is filled with events, prizes and fun for all ages. The program officially gets underway at the Northern Onondaga Public Library (NOPL) Monday, June 25, with special events at all three branch libraries throughout the week.
Kids and teens can sign up online or at the Brewerton, Cicero and North Syracuse branches, earning prizes each week for reporting the books they’ve read. Adults can join the fun too, with each branch offering a unique contest with prizes.
