SUMMER READING 2023

Welcome to Summer Reading 2023 at the Alpine County Library!

We are so excited to welcome readers back to in-person events and programs this summer. The 2023 Summer Reading theme of Find Your Voice perfectly aligns with our goals to offer a shared, supportive space in the library and build a community of readers, writers, students, teachers, and friends. Let's work together in the coming months to find our voices together. 

Our summer program is open to all ages and will run from July 8th to August 12th. We hope to see you at our events and programs and don't forget to pick-up and drop-off your reading logs to be entered into our end of summer drawing!
