“All Together Now” 2023 Summer Library program!
What is the Summer Library Program? Summer Reading Programs began popping up at libraries around the country in the 1890s as a way to encourage children to read during their summer break. They have evolved over time to incorporate engaging, quality, affordable activities and learning opportunities for all ages. Lewis & Clark Library is a member of the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP) which provides themes, artwork, materials, and resources. The 2023 Summer Library Program theme is All Together Now, featuring the artwork of Frank Morrison.
