DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM) — This summer, readers of all ages are encouraged to read, learn and explore the community with “Color Your World.”

The summer-long program will begin with the Dauphin County Library System on Tuesday, June 1, and ends on August 31. You can sign up by clicking here and browsing the online calendar to view all programs.
