2020 Summer Reading - Imagine Your Story

June 15 - August 24

Read Books • Attend Virtual Events • Write Reviews • Earn Badges • Win Prizes 

Will there be a Summer Reading Program this year? YES! After months of being stuck inside and having our lives upended, reading is more important than ever!

But, it will be a little different. Practicing social distancing is essential, so we’re trying something new this year by moving Summer Reading online to Readsquared, an online service provided by the State Library of New Jersey.  





How does it work?

Find the program for your age group below (children, Middle School & Teens, or adults).

Imagine Your Story: Let's Paint the Town! Saturday, August 8th

Since we can’t host programs indoors this year, we hope you’ll join us for an outdoor painting event! The Verona Public Library and Verona Arts are collaborating to bring attention to local businesses and add some whimsy to the town. The community is invited to paint designated storefront windows with this year’s Summer Reading theme: “Imagine Your Story.” We need your artistic talent! All ages are welcome, and families are encouraged to participate.
Designs should be submitted for approval. Be inspired by your favorite fairy tale, myth or legend!
Submit your design along with your name, phone number and email address to the Verona Public Library by July 31, 2020: info@veronalibrary.org
Space is limited. Entries will be accepted in the order received and should have a family-friendly theme. Painting will take place Saturday August 8, 2020 (rain date: Sunday, August 9). Location and time will be assigned to respect social distancing protocols. Paint will be provided, but please bring your own brushes, shoe box and a drop cloth.

We can’t wait to see your work.  Start designing!
