The reading program will kick off the week of June 25. Toddler storytime, for ages infant through six years, will be 10:15-11 a.m. Tuesdays. Children can listen to stories, sing, dance and do craft activities. Book Buddies will be noon-1 p.m. Tuesdays. Children in grades one through six will be paired up to read together, participate in literacy activities and games and have a snack.
