Summer at Your Library means free events for all ages, and the chance to register to win prizes for reading, learning and attending library events that include  performances, games, story times, parties, movies and so much more! In keeping with this year's theme, many events will have you rocking out with free concerts as well as music you make yourself; move-to-the-groove dance parties and workouts; and (with a nod to the literal) fun geology- and science-related events for all ages.

There will also be over 20 Summer at Your Library kick-off events for children and teens featuring wildlife shows, parties, top-notch children's performers, all free and all fun as well as larger-scale signature events such as the South Florida Book Festival, #DestinationRock - Dance Afterhours @Main, the Juneteenth Blues and Sweet Potato Pie Festival and the new Afro-Caribbean Weekend Fest. Details, including dates, times, locations and more, are listed in the attachment at the bottom of this page.
