Summertime is GR Reads time; 10 books, 28 events

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – Ah, summertime. Time to kick back with a cold lemonade and a good book on a warm afternoon. Long days give us more time to explore our community and attend interesting events. Summertime is GR Reads time.

This year the staff has picked ten books that are sure to keep you reading (or listening) right through to September. Their 28 events give you something new to do every week. Why not check them out? They’re free after all.

So, grab your library card and a friend and head down to the library to get started on a fun-filled summer. They’ll even keep the air conditioning on for you…
