Summer Library Program


2018 Collaborative Summer Library Program Theme: Libraries Rock!

Bridges Library System offers a variety of support for youth services including leadership from a Bridges librarian dedicated to youth and inclusive services.  Bridges Library System sponsors a summer library program workshop for youth services staff, summer library program incentives, three professional performances for each library during the summer library program, and more.

This year’s Collaborative Summer Library Program theme is centered around Libraries Rock! Many of our member libraries use this theme which makes for a very exciting summer!

Bridges Library System is arranging for three professional performers to offer a program at each member library in the summer of 2018. View the list of performance times and locations.

Libraries offer summer library program incentives to help motivate kids and teens to read more over the summer. Bridges Library System coordinates, prints and distributes many of the incentives used by the public libraries in the library system.  A big thanks goes out to our the area sponsors for the 2018 summer library program!  We are grateful for their generosity.
