Join the 2018 Summer Reading Program at the Highland Falls Library. How it works: No one too old to participate! All ages welcome. Families are encouraged to sign up together. Children are asked to read 20 minutes each day for stickers or beads. Teens and Adults can play along with the Libraries Rock bingo sheet.
Let’s see how many books the community reads this summer! Be part of the Community Art Mosaic when you share the title of the book that you have finished reading. You will receive a colored tile-shaped sticker to add to the mosaic.
