Summer Reading 2017

Our all ages summer reading program runs from June 24 – August 18.

How it works:

1. Register by filling out the registration form at either the Main library or Wilson Branch and get your own coupon book.

2. Do any activity on one of the tickets.

3. Enter your tickets in any weekly raffle at the library. You can save all your tickets for one raffle or spread them out. It’s up to you!

School summer reading requirements depend on your school/teacher, but we will be happy to help you find what you need.

We will have multiple copies of the One School One Book selections for Windsor Public Schools available for one week checkouts.
