Summer Reading Program


2023:  On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!


We are getting ready for our 2023 Summer Reading Program with the theme On Your Mark, Get Set, READ!


Beginning on Wednesday, June 7, children can register for our Summer Reading Challenge and receive a goal sheet and a free book! When your child completes the goal sheet, they can return it to the library. When they return their first goal sheet, they can design a race car and advance their car to the first stop on the race track. They will also earn a small prize! Your child can pick up a new goal sheet and keep on reading. Every time they bring a completed goal sheet to the library, they can advance their car and earn additional prizes!! Once they reach the finish line, their name will be put into a drawing for some BIGGER prizes. Please contact the library at 319-478-2180 with any questions you have.


We also have some fun and exciting programming planned for June!  All programs will be on Wednesdays at 10:00 AM in the Kupka Cultural Center in the lower level of the library.
