OUR SUMMER READING PROGRAM IS COMPLETELY SPONSORED BY THE FRIENDS OF FRANKLIN PUBLIC LIBRARY.

CHILDREN:  The more hours you read the more prizes you can win.  Once again this year we will have our candy jar.  For every milestone you reach you get one guess at how much candy is in the jar.  The person with the correct guess will be awarded the candy jar at the end of our Reading program. 

TEENS and ADULTS:  Join our summer reading program and win fabulous prizes.  Every time you read a book, enter your name in our weekly drawing.  Several prizes are given away each week.  Join us for our wrap-up Party on Monday, August 5.
