Berkley Summer Reading

Virtual Summer Reading 2020 at Berkley Public Library

Summer looks a little different this year, but we still have a lot of great things planned for you!

As usual, there is a reading challenge for each age group (youth, teen, & adult), and lots of events for all ages. These events will be held online through a variety of platforms this year.

Below you will find all the information and registration links for both the reading challenge and the events, divided by age group.

Many thanks to The Friends of Berkley Public Library and Vibe Credit Union for sponsoring this year’s program!
