Travel along with us this summer!
Make us part of your summer staycation! Explore the world and our backyard through our Summer Reading Program, Have Book, Will Travel. We’ve planned lots of programs, with crafts and performers, that will take you everywhere, from the mountains of Guatemala with the Madrigal family to the Scottish Highlands with a musical bard. We’ll also travel to fictional galaxies and visit a performer from India.

Read or listen to books, audiobooks, or magazines and track your reading at myAPL.beanstack.org or the Beanstack app. You may also use a print log available at all library locations.
