Summit County Library system lights up the summer

Summit County Library System includes three branches — Kimball Junction, Coalville and the newly opened branch in Kamas.

Each has programmed a fun, eventful and educational summer for kids.

"Libraries ROCK!" and we'll be rockin' out all summer long! Stop by any time, after June 6, to sign up for our summer reading program and pick up our detailed summer activities calendar.

We'll be drumming up all kinds of family fun at our Summer Reading Drum Circle Celebration! Monday, June 11, 6 p.m. Drumming improves confidence, coordination, creativity and focus. It helps build community—and it's a blast! Bring the whole family.
