HARTFORD — The Hartford Public Library kicked off it’s summer reading series on Thursday at the downtown branch on Main Street with Sandra Rodriguez Barron (shown in featured photo).
Novel Destinations is the theme of Hartford Public Library’s 2011 summer reading program for adults. Participants borrow books, audiobooks, and magazines, read them, and then complete and submit an entry card for each item read.
