The Moffat County Libraries is launching our annual Summer Reading Program on May 31.
Readers of all ages will travel the globe this summer as we present "One World, Many Stories" during the program.
Children will explore all seven continents through stories, crafts, music, dance and other activities.
The Summer Reading Program is open to everyone, birth through adult, with activities, prizes, story hours, a youth club and more.
