Summer Library Program 2021

Welcome to our Summer Library Program 2021: Tails & Tales!

We are beyond excited to once again present our free six-week Summer Library Program filled with presentations, projects, and activities for all ages – infant through adult. Again, this year, activities will be individually packaged to complete either at the library (if space permits), home, outside, or out and about.

New this year - brag tags and your own individual reading roadmap to direct you as you complete each challenge or activity and work your way to the finish line. Also, please note that like last year, the library will not be providing food at the finale on July 27 for program participants. Please bring your own picnic lunch as you join in on our finale celebrations!

Registration Information & Potential Schedule Changes

It is especially important that you are registered to attend scheduled presentations in order for library staff to plan accordingly. To register for our 2021 Summer Library Program, either stop by the library and pick up the form, download and complete this form and return it to the library, or complete online registration here – it’s that easy!

Please note that any teens registering should also complete color picks for our acrylic painting program as soon as possible. Picks must be done by June 29th.

For schedules, events, and changes, please call or check our Facebook page. Please keep in mind that all programs and activities may be subject to change with little or no notice during this time. Please contact the library with any questions about how we plan on doing our summer program this year.

We can't wait to see you all and make this year's summer program one they'll be telling tales about!
