Summer Reading

The ABLE Library is pleased to offer a summer reading program this year to all of our patrons. There are several ways to participate in our summer reading program. You can read a book and leave a short review (just a couple of sentences). You can attend a virtual program presented by NLS. You can also play Summer Reading BINGO to earn a certificate of participation from NLS.
