Every Hero Has a Story this summer at the Sonoma County Library Summer Reading Club! 

Read for fun and prizes this summer. Kids ages 0-12 are welcome to join the children's Summer Reading Club beginning June 9. Libraries will have free live performances, arts and crafts and more for all ages.

The Club runs from June 9, 2015 through August 1, 2015.

  • Sign up at any regional library beginning June 9, 2015.
  • Read to win prizes and a free book
  • We are BURSTING with books, crafts, stories and SPECIAL GUEST PERFORMERS! 

Parents!   Summertime is the perfect time for children to continue improving their reading skills. Bring your child to the library to check out books on all the subjects they love— those lazy summer days will be filled with imagination and exploration in the world of books!

All Summer Reading events are Free!

The 2015 Summer Reading Club is sponsored in full by the Sonoma County Public Library Foundation

We are so grateful to the SCPLF volunteers for their commitment to supporting literacy programs at the Sonoma County Library. We also would like to express thanks to the donors in our community who give to the Sonoma County Public Library Foundation, for helping us to make this important program available to the children and teens of our Sonoma County communities!

Additional Sponsors:

Petaluma Seed Bank: For the third year in a row, the Petaluma Seed Bank has generously donated a packet of seeds for every child who participates in the Sonoma County Library Summer Reading Club.

Raley's NickelAid: Local grocery store chain Raley's makes a charitable donation of $.05 per bag for each time a patron uses a reusable bag in their stores, and those donations go to a charity chosen by their patrons. In 2014, Raley's patrons voted to award those donations to public library summer reading programs, so this year we are able to offer additional summer reading events in the four Sonoma County communities that host a Raley's grocery store.


These local businesses support the children in their community by providing incentives for kids to keep reading all summer long.  Thank you for your support!
