Summer Reading Club: June 2 through July 31, 2020

Each summer, the Kennedale Library is proud to offer Summer Reading Club — an eight-week program designed to keep kids’ skills sharp, provide family time opportunities, and encourage a love of reading in all ages.

Yes, it will be a little different this year, due to the need to keep our distance, but we believe our friends are like stars. Even when you can’t always see them, you know they’re always there.
