This year's Summer Reading Program theme in Lincoln County is "READ BEYOND THE BEATEN PATH". Get outside and explore your community! Read stories about the places and people on the Oregon Coast and beyond. Summer reading program families are also encouraged to explore the outdoors with clue-directed hunts known as Oregon Coast Quests. Read the directions and follow the clues to find the hidden Quest Box!

Come sign up for the Summer Reading Program and go on a Quest with the librarians!
