Summer Reading Club

Summer Reading Club

Flex your mind and body this summer with the Summer Reading Club at the Botanical Garden Library. Kids learn about the natural world in a new game format and receive seeds to plant as they meet weekly reading and activity goals! Special prizes await children who complete the eight-week program. Prevent the "summer slide" and get outside — join the Club! Drop in during the Library's open hours, 10am–4pm (six days a week; closed Tuesdays), June 1–July 31. Library admission FREE, Garden activities FREE with regular admission.

This fun program is self-paced and children and families can drop in to the Library any time during open hours starting June 1st to sign up, read stories, and log their reading and activity accomplishments. Logbooks include suggested titles, fun nature activities, and special events.

Our collection of children's library books is available for all to enjoy. SFBG Members may check-out children's books from the Library to read at home.
