March means Spring Break! The Cover to Cover Spring Reading Program for kids age 4-12 starts March 3. There are also events for kids, teens, and even adults - no passport required!
Our Spring Reading Program starts March 3 for kids ages 4-12. Sponsored by In-N-Out Burger®, kids can sign up for the “Cover to Cover Club” by dropping in at the library and asking for a reading log. Reading five books earns one certificate with a coupon for a free hamburger or cheeseburger at In-N-Out Burger®, and each child can earn up to three certificates. The program is available until April 14, while supplies last.
