Summer Reading Program

Candor Free Library Summer Reading Program 2023

Please join us this summer for more than 6 weeks of fun programs activities and prizes!

Toddlers through 18 can sign up for reading contests with prizes such as B&N gift cards and for 12-18, a chance to win Dollar General gift cards. Everyone will get to pick a free book and there will be other weekly Take Home projects or prizes for everyone.

No required attendance…participate as much as you’d like, even if you’d just want to choose a free book.

Programs are open to all, including adults, regardless if you sign up.

We are still planning, but so far we have these awesome programs scheduled…
