The La Porte County Public Library’s 2020 Summer Reading Program officially kicked off on Monday, June 8, and will continue until Friday, July 31! As of Monday the 8th, 352 people were signed up to participate! If you signed up, don’t forget to pick up your Imagination Kit! You can either come into the library or utilize our curbside service to get your kit. The Imagination Kits are full of supplies to help you be creative this summer! Check out the library’s social media throughout the summer for suggestions on how to use the materials found in your kit.
Now is the time to read, read, read! Record your reading days using this form. Any day spent reading or listening to reading counts as a reading day! Youth under the age of 18 who log 4 reading days in a week will be entered in a drawing for a prize! Prizes include coupons and certificates from local businesses! Need a book recommendation for a reading day? Our Summer Reading web page is here to help! The page includes ideas for three age groups: preschool to second grade, upper elementary, and teens.
The Summer Reading web page is FULL of information! For example, exciting events and resources for youth and families are promoted. Check out events like our virtual Pack-A-Sacks, Ozobot Camp, and Music & Me Virtual Camp with Wendy Daly. Also, check out our Guest Reader section! Community members are featured in videos sharing some of their favorite books! These videos will change throughout the summer, so don’t forget to check back periodically! If you watch one of these videos, don’t forget to log a reading day!
Didn’t get a chance to sign-up? Don’t worry! You can still participate and get an Imagination Kit while supplies last. Simply log your reading days using the form mentioned above or stop in at any location to pick up an Imagination Kit. Imagination Kits can also be picked up using Curbside service.
