Summer Reading!

Summer Reading means celebration time! We’re throwing a party to kickoff an absolutely filled-to-the-brim-with-fun summer on Saturday, May 30 from 10:00am to noon. Organizations from around town will have hands-on activities for families, we’ll pass out some donuts, you can get your picture taken in a superhero-themed photobooth, and more! Plus, our Friends and Foundation will be on hand offering a summer reads book sale (everything is $2 or less) and the Foundation is bringing back their beloved Caddy Stacks - it’s Lawrence’s wackiest mini-golf on the Library Lawn!

What is Summer Reading?

We’ve planned one of the best summers yet, all based on our awesome superhero theme: “Every Hero has a Story!” We’ll have events for all ages (and all over town) throughout the summer. Plus, anyone and everyone is invited to complete Summer Reading – all you have to do is read 12 books or for a total of 30 hours if you’re a child or teen, or read 5 books or for a total of 30 hours if you’re an adult. Fill out a reading log with all of the books you’ve read over the summer, and when you turn it in, you’ll get sweet prizes…just for reading!

You can pick up a booklet with all of the information you need (bonus: reading recommendations are included!) starting the day school is released – MAY 21! Or, if you’re in a hurry to get started, you can get a sneak peek at everything here (but keep it a secret…).


Storytimes are back!

You can get back in the groove! Books & Babies and Library Storytime resume on May 26,  Toddlers on May 28, Stories & Songs on May 31. Check the calendar for the details.
