A Universe of Stories - Summer Library Program - June 17 - July 26

Tap into all the wonder of space this summer with projects, games, books, STEAM projects and more which celebrate the Universe of Stories.  Here's how it works: Keep track of your reading. For each hour that you read, you'll get a sticker for the progress chart. Each sticker represents one dollar that will be donated to a local charity. You'll receive little surprise treats along the way, too.

Where's the Astro-duck?  Every day, a rubber Astro-duck will be hiding somewhere in the library. When you find it, tell the librarian where it is and you can put your name in for a weekly prize drawing.

Building Your Child’s Literacy Skills

Parents and teachers know that children who are read to at an early age become confident, capable readers. Reading to your child just twenty minutes each day helps encourage language skills, stimulate curiosity, and prepare for success in school.

Have a child with a specific interest like race cars or horses? Need help finding the right book to interest your young reader? Have a school project deadline coming up? Just ask and we will be happy to help you locate just the right books either on our shelves or available through the South Central Library System.
