Summer Discovery

Build a Better World this summer by supporting summer learning at Anchorage Public Library.

It is well documented that reading provides a strong foundation for life-long learning. If we foster a love for reading in children today, they will enjoy many rewards tomorrow. We hope you will consider the 17th Annual Reading Rendezvous a worthy community event.


Reading Rendezvous - Support Summer Learning!

At the end of each school year Anchorage Public Library hosts Reading Rendezvous as the kick-off event of Summer Discovery, a program that encourages children of all ages to continue reading and learning throughout the summer.

Reading Rendezvous is a free, community-sponsored event held on the grounds of Loussac Library, where local businesses and non-profit organizations offer literacy-themed activities. In addition to activity booths, previous Reading Rendezvous celebrations included musicians, a magician, jugglers, and live animals! The theme of the 17th Annual Reading Rendezvous is "Build A Better World!"

Reading Rendezvous is Saturday, May 20, 12pm-4pm. See you there!
