The city's librarian, Cynthia Pfledderer, also shares all the exciting activities the reading program has in store this Summer, including weekly challenges, daily scavenger hunts, an art club, a chess club, and even entertainment like animal shows and magic shows.

Bored at home? This summer, dive into everything that the Southlake Public Library has to offer with its programming for kids of all ages!

This year’s summer reading program began on May 26, but it’s not too late to sign up! The free and simple registration is still open for the “All Together Now” program which runs through July 21, 2023. This experience is full of adventures, weekly challenges, prizes, reading, and more.

Prizes this year are better than ever, ranging from toys to technology to encourage all to flip those pages! To see the prize displays, visit the library on the first floor of Town Hall.

However, if you’re looking to get out of the house, consider viewing the events tab on the Southlake Public Library Facebook page. Here, you can find a list of all upcoming events including magic shows, creature features, cultural performances, chalk art, and so much more.

Kids of all ages, and adults young at heart too, can explore the magic of making memories all summer long at the library.
