Summer Reading Program

Summer Reading Program

We are paws-itively excited for this year's Summer Reading Program, Tails and Tales! Research has shown that kids can prevent the summer slide by reading at least 20 minutes a day over the summer, but the Summer Reading Program is not only for kids anymore - there is a program for every age! Prize packs and a free book will be available at the completion of the program starting Aug. 2. We hope you will dive into a new adventure with us this summer!

For more details and to sign-up, visit ScottsdaleLibrary.org/summer-reading.

Participate in the Virtual Public Meeting
for Scottsdale Civic Center Re-build

Civic Center Re-build

This project will rebuild portions of Scottsdale Civic Center as the community's signature special event and public gathering space. In 2019, Scottsdale voters approved three bond questions, which contained funding to replace aging infrastructure and create public event spaces in the Civic Center area. These proposed improvements are based on the community outreach and Civic Center Municipal Use Master Plan that was approved by City Council in 2018. To participate, visit the project website by June 11 and submit your comments. For more information, contact City of Scottsdale Project Manager Elaine Mercado, at 480-312-7985 or EMercado@ScottsdaleAZ.gov
