This year’s theme is Dig Deeper: Read, Investigate, Discover – Reading opens doors to learning and fun! We hope you will participate by joining us and readers all across the region this summer!
Of necessity, there will be some significant changes for the 2020 program. One of the biggest will be, for the first time, readers of all ages can participate entirely online!
Another change is that readers of all ages will be able to participate throughout the ECRL region! Everyone will be able to Dig Deeper according to these age ranges:
