Summer Reading Program


We are so excited to be gearing up for another great summer reading program.  This year will be our best one yet!!  We are already planning lots of great activities and prizes for our theme: Libraries Rock! Check out our Library Events Page or our Events Calendar to see what we’ve got planned for you this Summer!!

Summer Reading booklets can be picked up starting June 1. To kick off the program we are having a skating party at the Wellman Skating Rink on Friday, June 8 from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM. Be sure the register before March 31 to be sure you receive all the fun prizes!


This year we are offering a fun way to earn an extra vote in the grand prize drawing. All you have to do is write a book review or create a book trailer for a book that you have read this summer. Click HERE for more info.


Tweens & Teens! We are trying something new this year for kids in grades 6th-11th. Stop by the library each week and check out an age-appropriate book and receive a scratch-off ticket and an entry in the grand prize drawing. Limit one per week. To earn an extra ticket and entry, write a book review or create a book trailer. For more info on book trailers, click HERE. No registration needed!


Attention adults!!  After a successful first year of our Adult Summer Reading Program, we are happy to announce that we will be doing it again this year!  We will have prizes (including some from Kalona Chocolates, the Shop, Kalona Coffee House, Dodici’s Cafe and more!!) and some great programs.  Be sure to register today!  Online registration can be found here or stop by the library to pick up a form.
