Summer Reading Programs

June 10 through August 23

We are pleased to offer summer reading programs for a variety of readers:

  • Read to Me – for babies, toddlers, and children who are not reading on their own yet
  • Readers – for children who can read on their own (primarily ages 6-11)

    Both groups can be read to or listen to audiobooks. Children receive a free book for each 90 minute reading level they complete. Gently used children’s books are still needed for this purpose, especially board books and beginning readers.
  • primarily ages 12-18

Full rules and details for each program are available at the library along with reading logs.

Family Fun @ Horicon Marsh

Mark your calendars for the most fun day of the year, Saturday, June 29, 2019, 9 AM – 1 PM, at the Horicon Marsh Education and Visitor Center. Join other library patrons from Dodge, Ozaukee, Sheboygan, and Washington County libraries for a day on the marsh! This event, held rain or shine, is FREE and for all ages. Family Fun @ Horicon Marsh offers many indoor and outdoor activities such as Horicon Marsh Explorium admission, wildlife walks, archery, dip netting, face painting, a photo booth, crafts for kids, and more. You are welcome to pack a picnic lunch. Food and water will also be available for purchase.
