Libraries Rock!

Summer Reading is wrapping up for most of us... which means it is time to start planning for summer reading!

The Collaborative Summer Reading program theme for 2018 is "Libraries Rock!" so we are all in for a musical time. Don't use the collaborative theme? No problem -- there's still plenty here that you can use for summer and all year long!

This year, we will feature programs (among others) on making your own musical instruments and learning how to strum a ukulele. You'll even pick up a free ukulele for your library system to use in programming.

Registration is open, so join us on Tuesday, September 12, 2017 for a full day of programming ideas. See you soon!

Executive Director, SWON Libraries
