2017 Summer Library Program

June 12 - August 4

Read, Read, Read

The goal for all ages is to read or be read to 20 minutes per day or 2 hours per week.  You can help build a better community by reading for a charity this summer. The charities we have chosen are the Waupaca County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit and Iola and Rural Fire Department.

Each time you return a reading record you will get 2 stickers to place on the charity poster of your choice. If you read every week of the program you will be able to make 8 donations that will make a difference in someone’s life. Everyone who reads and returns every reading record will receive a certificate for a free Pizza Hut personal pan pizza at the end of the program.
