A variety of programs for children of all ages are offered at the Victorville City Library. Programs are all free of charge, and pre-registration is not required. There's a world of opportunity for kids to get involved at the Library! 

Summer Reading Program

The Library invites everyone to participate in the annual Summer Reading Program - from infants to teens, to adults.

Simply stop by the Library to sign up. Reading during the summer break is essential for children and teens to help maintain their reading skills and to prevent the “summer slide.”

The Summer Reading Program continues for eight weeks:

Saturday, June 1, 2019 - Thursday, July 25, 2019

Children age 0-12 years: Read 10 books or 350 pages per week to earn books, prizes, show tickets, and raffle tickets.

Teens age 13-17 years: Read up to five books per week to earn books, prizes, and raffle tickets.

Adults age 18 and older: Read up to five books per week to earn books and raffle tickets.

Children Shows are free but require an earned ticket and are held on Thursdays at 3:00 pm at the Victorville Activities Center.

Teen Shows are free and are held on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm at the Victorville City Library.
