Local Libraries Release Summer Activities June Schedule

SWEETWATER COUNTY — The Sweetwater County Library System is excited to announce a full slate of in-person programs for the summer.

“We are happy to be able to host in-person events again,” assistant library director Lindsey Travis said.

“Starting June 1, we will have weekly story times, toddler times, summer reading events, and more.”

The events are all part of the library’s Level Up Summer Reading Challenge, a program that encourages children and people of all ages to read and learn throughout the summer when school is out.
