Cabarrus Summer Reading Events
Blast off with the Cabarrus County Public Library System’s Summer Reading Program. This year’s theme is 'A Universe of Stories.' The program divides participants into groups—birth to 5 years old, 6 to 12 years old, 12 to 18 years old, and adult—with age-appropriate programs, performers and events. The program continues through August 17.
