Arrowhead Library System is a proud supporter of summer and winter reading programming throughout our seven county region. Regional patrons may participate in programming through Mail-A-Book, by visiting the ALS Bookmobile, or signing up at your local participating public library.  Themes vary from year to year, but program activities always support literacy development and encourage life long library use.  These programs are optional for public libraries — to find out if your local library is offering a summer or winter reading program, please visit our Member Public Library page for contact information.
