People laughing

Summer Reading is here, and it's all about badges this year! For both teens and adults, once you've earned two badges, you're half way through the program and ready for a free burrito from Chipotle. At Southeast Library, we will be gathering to collect multiple badges all at once by downloading a short, hilarious audio book, discussing it, and then eating burritos at Chipotle.
That's right! Come listen to a hilarious story from our Overdrive database and walk away with a free burrito!

We don't know what audio books will be available on the night of our burrito convergence, so be prepared to help decide what we listen to.
