MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!! Because everyone’s invited to the Summer Reading Kickoff Extravaganza at the Portland District Library Friday, June 9 from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

An entire day dedicated to food, fun, swag, and Summer Reading Program registration for all-ages. And when we say all-ages, we mean it! We want everyone in the community, ages 0-100, to stop by the library to grab something to eat, enjoy our activities, and most importantly, register for this year’s reading program.

**This year’s kickoff is sponsored by the Innovative Community Library Grant, a partnership between Portland Public Schools and Portland District Library.**
