"There is divine beauty in learning, just as there is human beauty in tolerance. To learn means to accept the postulate that life did not begin at my birth. Others have been here before me, and I walk in their footsteps. The books I have read were composed by generations of fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, teachers and disciples. I am the sum total of their experiences, their quests. And so are you."

—Elie(zer) Wiesel (b. 1928) Romanian-born writer, lecturer, survivor Nazi camps, Nobel

Summer Reading

Summer Reading 2015 - Details coming soon.

The Library offers and annual, 6-week program of events open to all children in the community.  With a focus on reading, we host a weekly "party" on a different theme, as well as invite different performers to come and entertain.  And of course, everyone has an opportunity to read for prizes.  See below for the full schedule.


COMING SOON: schedule of events



Cumberland County Public Schools have a separate requirement for students to read and complete required projects.  The Cumberland County Public Library does its best to provide copies of the books on the school lists, except where titles are out of print or otherwise unavailable.  Library copies of the books on the Cumberland summer reading lists are marked with a special spine label and can be checked-out for 3-weeks at a time.  They cannot be renewed.

To see your school's list, click the appropriate link below:  Links will be added in May 2015
