Summer Library Program ~ June 16 - August 8

Sign up for the program and pick up your reading record at the Library. We have Reading Records for children, teens and adults.

  • Children ages birth through 12 are asked to read or be read to 20 minutes per day or 2 hours per week. Bring your reading record back every two weeks and choose a prize. If you read all 8 weeks your name will be entered into a drawing for other prizes at the end of the program. 
  • Teens are asked to read 8 books during the 8 week program. Teens may return their record when they have read 6 books and put their name in for a prize to be drawn in August.
  • Adults may put a slip in for a prize drawing each time they return their books.

Followed by a pot luck lunch.

Participation opportunities abound in this "Pol-KABOOM" show! Catchy sing-along polka songs and a quick round of "Name that Tune" complement the program theme, and of course, no one goes home without doing the "Chicken Dance" and a special polka version of "Head, Shoulders, Knees, and Toes." Plenty of singing, dancing, and education make this show fun for the whole family!

After all the polka fun everyone is invited to a pot luck lunch. The Library will provide a main dish, beverage and a dessert. Please bring a dish to share.

If you can’t attend the polka fun you may still join us for lunch. We will eat around Noon.

Sign up at the Library or call 715-445-4330 to let us know how many will be coming and what you will be bringing.
