Once again, the Friends of the Ripon Public Library have agreed to donate 10 cents to the Ripon Area Food Pantries for each book read or listened to during our adult summer reading program. You have to be enrolled in the program for your books to count! Our goal is to read 1200 books this year! Please help out in this worthy cause. Watch for weekly book count updates!
