2019 Summer Reading Game


Reading Through the Years is the theme of this year’s summer reading game at the Pleasanton Public Library, in observation of Pleasanton’s quasquicentennial, or 125 year anniversary. From June 1 to August 4, plan to enjoy a historic summer of reading fun for everyone!

StoryWalk® and Little Free Library

This summer, the City of Pleasanton invites you to participate in a StoryWalk®, a self-guided walk through the pages of Literary Arts Ambassador Meg Fleming’s acclaimed children’s books “Sometimes Rain” and “Ready, Set, Sail,” displayed in the windows of featured shops. The StoryWalk® path will begin at the Pleasanton Library, where visitors can pick up a map to start their self-guided tour. Each numbered stop features a different page of a picture book, laminated and displayed in downtown store windows.  

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library.

The Little Free Library at the Firehouse Arts Center is stocked with books for all ages, courtesy of the Friends of the Pleasanton Library. Books are available free to all, and operate on a “take a book, leave a book” concept. To find more little free libraries in Pleasanton, download the STQRY app, or visit STQRY online.
