Siouxland Summer Reading Programs 2019


Summer is a great time to read, and our local Siouxland libraries do a great job of supporting summer reading with fun programs for kids (and even one or two for adults!).   Most of the Siouxland libraries are doing the theme "A Universe of Reading" as their theme.
