    Programming

    Summer Reading Program

    • We have made the difficult decision to cancel the summer reading program this year.  We want to encourage all of our young readers to pick-up books and enjoy reading this summer.  We will all miss seeing you in the library and we look forward to a time when we can celebrate reading together.
    • The children’s librarians will continue to post engaging storytime, activity, and craft programs virtually.

    The buildings will remain closed to the public. We will bring back in person services when it is safe to do so. Our digital library and library databases will remain available 24/7.

    Thank you for supporting the Franklin-Springboro Public Library.
