Summer Reading Program 2022

Hollis Center Public Library's 2022 Summer Reading Program is Where Can You Read? Let's have fun reading in comfy and creative places! The program runs from July 9th to August 6th. Snacks provided at all events-gluten free options will be available.

We will ask you to keep track of the places you read on a sheet we will provide. 10 entries will qualify you for a prize at the end of the program. Prizes will be determined once we know how many participants we have.

All events will be at the library except for our program at Rivers Edge Farm on August 3rd.
