WILMINGTON — Delaware’s first lady Tracey Quillen Carney and State Librarian Dr. Annie Norman on Wednesday announced the launch of the 2021 statewide Summer Library Reading Program, “Tails and Tales.”


Now in its 43rd year, the annual Summer Library Reading Program provides early literacy programs to help children build and develop reading and language skills, teen programs that motivate youth to read and discuss literature, and programs that encourage adults to experience the joy of reading.



Registration for the program is available at all public libraries or online and is free. Incentive badges are awarded based on reading and activity milestones.


Visit here for the schedule of online and outdoor events throughout the summer. The performing-arts component of the program is sponsored in partnership with the Delaware Division of the Arts.
