This year, summer learning in Hartford is all about getting out into your community to learn together. Join one of our clubs - Health, Hartford, STEM, Art, Nature, or Reading - and complete at least 5 #readgodo #leevehaz activities to win the summer! Want to sample all the clubs? Great! Complete one activity from each and you've completed the Summer Sampler.

Complete 5 club activities to earn a custom button from a Hartford artist PLUS a ticket to the August 24th Hartford Athletic game! Parade with us to the park, grab some local grub, cheer for the team, and stay for the fun! What better way to celebrate your accomplishments than a day at the new Dillon stadium with the fam?

Track your completed summer learning activities, show a library worker your accomplishments by 5pm on August 24th, and get a ticket to the Hartford Athletic game.
