Summer Reading Program Kickoff Carnival!

Summer Reading Program Kickoff Carnival!

Join the Davenport Public Library this year for a fun-filled, action-packed carnival as the kick-off to the Summer Reading Program! Come to the Eastern Avenue Branch (6000 Eastern Avenue) tomorrow, June 1st, any time between 12:00 and 4:00 p.m. for an afternoon of adventure!

The first stop will be signing up for the Summer Reading Program, with this year’s theme of “Dig Into Reading.” We’ll have information about the program and the grand prizes on display, plus a calendar of all our events taking place this summer. Other features will be a dunk tank, games, freebies, and Libby the Library Dog in all her glory as a 25’ balloon!

The Summer Reading Program is for all ages, and we welcome patrons from anywhere in the Quad Cities. For a complete list of the Summer Reading Program events or for more information, call (563) 326-7832.
