Welcome to the Cambridge City Public Library

This July, the Cambridge City Public Library's Summer Reading Program continues with exciting events for all ages. Readers of all ages are welcome to compete for drawing prizes, with more books read increasing your chances of winning in your age category. What does it feel like to ride the runners behind a team of dogs, steering a loaded sled through mountainous terrain, crossing the vast Alaskan tundra, hugging the shoreline of the great Bering Sea? What does it take to care for a team of Alaskan huskies? Could my dog be a sled dog, too? Karen Land, musher, will answer these questions and more when she and Noggin, the Alaskan husky, visit the Golay Center on July 3rd at 2 pm. Land is a writer, public speaker, and three-time participant in the 1000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race as well as many other sprint and endurance races in Alaska, Canada, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Maine. On July 31st, the Lincoln Marching Eagles will perform at the library at 2 pm. You can sign up for the Summer Reading Program online at CambridgeCityLibrary.READsquared.com, and see the full summer schedule at ccitypl.org/2024-summer-reading.
