The theme of this year’s summer reading is “A Universe of Stories.”

Participants in the initiative earn stickers and prizes for reading books.

Abby Lowry, 17, is one of several volunteers managing the registration desk for the summer reading program. Abby said the participation and the enthusiasm of the young learners has been great this year.
