Join us for the Chatham Square Teen Summer Reading Kick-Off Party!

We'll kick things off with World Beat and Percussion with Dale Gordon at 11AM. It's time to get LOUD in the library. Sync the beat with your friends or create your own rhythm on drums, rattles, and more. Create your own lyrics while rocking out with your friends.  For ages 12 to 18 years old.

After that, if you're entering grades 6-12, be sure to sign up for the Summer Reading Program and learn about the other great stuff for teens at Chatham Square this summer. Snacks will be available, and we'll have tons of books on display that you can check out and start reading to get a head start on the contest! The party ends at 1pm, but you can sign up for Summer Reading any time during the summer.
