Bring your stuffed animal to the Boulder Creek Library on Wednesday July 16th for an afternoon storytime. After some stories and songs, say goodnight to your stuffed animal and let the wild rumpus begin!

The stuffed animals will have a wonderful time at the library and will have lots to show you when you pick them up on Friday, July 18th @ 3:00 p.m. You'll get to watch a slide show of all the fun, plus enjoy a simple snack and some fun with friends.

Woof, wag, stomp, yowl and howl for a summer of fun!


Join us for great reads, amazing performances, workshops and more all organized around the theme of animals! Make a catnip treat, an animal photo collage, chase some bubbles and watch a cowgirl in action. Consider reading aloud to a furry friend! Bring your favorite stuffed animal to a library sleepover! Check out our themed reading list, too!

Theme or no theme, the summer reading program is all about reading what you love and loving what you read! Choose whichever books interest you, from your home library, other libraries or elsewhere. Begin reading as soon as school is out. Check our calendar of events -- workshops requiring pre-registration will be open for sign-ups starting June 9th.

Sign-ups begin June 9th for ages 0-18. Get a reading log and track your summer reading time for the chance to earn Book-Bucks that can be spent at participating shops.
