The nonprofit Broward Public Library Foundation raises private funds to enhance the Broward County Library system, which was deemed Florida's Library of the Year for 2015. Summer Reading also includes activities, programming and challenges for teens and adults. "The library is anticipating a great turn out for the program and hopes to surpass 2017 registrations of 199 readers".

Our summer program is created to encourage and engage youth to READ, LEARN, and EXPLORE so that valuable skills are sustained over the summer and dare I say, it is also FUN.

The 2018 Summer Reading Program is open to youngsters preschool through age 12 with programs, storytimes, reading goals, and more.

And on June 30, at 11 a.m., the Atlantic Coast Theater Group presents FLIGHT! Participants who complete the activities receive a board book and a free tote bag.

And the price is always right: all programs are free of charge.
