Ripon Public Library continues its Tails & Tales-themed summer library program with a schedule of events and experiences, a Read-for-a-Cause campaign and prizes.
The program is intended to offer layers of engagement for all ages — kids, families, teens, adults — all-summer long.
Reservations are not required to attend events unless noted. Registration in the summer reading program earns participants Read-for-a-Cause votes and entry into exciting prize drawings through the month of August!
