Marion – Adult Summer Reading Program

Adult Summer Reading:

Our Program this year will be a little different for obvious reasons. Additional programs and activities will be added throughout the program weekly. This page will have all of our program and activities posted throughout the summer. Parents are encouraged to join! Reading 15 childrens books to a child counts as 1 adult book!
