Readers of all ages will explore all things underground this summer as Rockland Public Library presents its summer reading program.

“The Summer Reading Program is not only an excellent tool to help kids maintain their reading skills over the summer, but it also promotes the sheer joy of reading, for people of all ages," said Library Director Amy Levine in a news release.

The program will run from June 15 to Aug. 17. Children can sign up for the Dig Into Reading program and teens and tweens can participate in the Reading Through Middle Earth program. The library will be collaborating with Merryspring Gardens and the Finnish Heritage House to offer new programs. Adults can join the fun by signing up for the Ground Breaking Reads program.

The first day to register for the Summer Reading Program in person is Saturday, June 15; however, the library began taking online registrations June 1 at

The Summer Reading Program will kick off June 15 with a Secret Garden Day, presented by Girl Scout Troop 2117, and will wrap up with a party for all participants, on Aug. 17.
