The Summer Imagination Program 2020, month 3!

Imagine A New Story…
It’s time for our Summer Reading Program for ALL ages! This year’s Summer Reading Program is going to be called “Summer Imagination Program” and the theme is “Imagine a New Story!” We’ll be imagining, discovering, and reading together!

The library is all about supporting reading, learning, exploring, growing, and our community in the best ways we can! Since we are in a time of helping one another even more, we will be raising money for the South Portland Food Cupboard while we all enjoy participating in some fun, creative, relaxing, and imaginative activities!

For each month that you sign up (June, July, and August), the Friends of the South Portland Public Library will donate $1 to the Food Cupboard. Each person who signs up and participates in all 3 months adds another $1 to the Food Cupboard! A huge THANK YOU to the Friends of the South Portland Public Library for your continued generosity in making this happen!
