Join the Library District and our community partners to celebrate the start of Summer at the Library on Saturday, June 3, from 10 a.m. to noon at Depot Park! Register the whole family for the summer reading program and receive a free book for kids and teens ages 18 and younger. 

Come to Depot Park's open lawn near the corner of South Main Street and Southeast Depot Avenue where we will have tents, music, and activities for all ages. Sign up for Beanstack, our Summer at the Library tracking program, to receive your free book and goodie bag. You can track your reading and summer fun from June 1 to July 31 to earn badges for chances to win one of three grand prize tablets from PDQ Restaurant . 

Check out activities from our community partners - including Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo, Escapology, Fun 4 Gator Kids, Giggle Magazine, and more - and learn about their summer plans. Grab a treat from the Parkside Convenience Store or get a Hawaiian Ice from Ollies. Look for entertainment from Gainesville magician Magic Mike and stilt walkers from the Gainesville Circus Center.

This summer's theme is All Together Now and we can't wait to dive into the fun with you!  

Thank you to our Summer at the Library sponsors, PDQ Restaurant, MARC Radio Group, and the Friends of the Library.
