Dig Into Summer

This summer, grow your way! We invite kids, teens and adults to celebrate the joy of learning through fun activities, educational challenges, exciting prizes and live events.

What is Summer Learning?

The annual Kitsap Regional Library Summer Learning program offers self-paced reading and learning experiences for all ages.
