SUMMER READING PROGRAMS BEGIN

During June and July an array of activities designed to encourage reading and literacy will emphasize the joy of reading for all ages.  Children and teens can earn a free book by engaging in games, crafts, and other activities, while adults can participate in reading challenges of various kinds.  Special guest presentations are also scheduled.  Your CFOL is providing  funding to supplement support from the Butte County Library system.  Visit the Chico branch library to learn more and sign up.  

See the Butte County Library homepage for a preview of adult Library Bingo.
