Summer Reading Program
May 21st – July 27th
- Visit the Library and pick up a booklet!
- Track your reading time: Keep track of how much time you read/listen to a book, and check off a small square for every 15 minutes in the booklet. We are tracking time read, not the number of books.
- Track your activities: Write your activities in the boxes provided on the inside of the booklet.
- Win prizes: After completing 10 hours of reading and 10 activities, come in and receive a coupon packet. After 20 hours and 20 activities, kids will receive a coupon packet. After reading 20 hours and completing 20 activities, kids will receive a free book of their choice and everyone will receive a backpack (while supplies last) and be entered to win one of our Grand Prizes!

This week’s featured activity: Homemade Crayons
Did you know that crayons don’t decompose? Do the planet (and yourself) a favor by making these fun “crayon cupcakes.” Bonus– they’re a great gift and really easy for little hands to hold!
- Plenty of broken crayons
- Silicone baking mold or muffin tin and paper liners|
- Gather up all of your broken crayons, peel off the paper wrappers, and cut (or mash) them into small pieces.
- Sort your crayons by color! If you’d like multicolored crayons, skip this step.
- Fill each cup in your mold or tin with about 1” of crayon pieces.
- Heat in the oven at 250 for about 15 minutes. Make sure you stay close by and check your crayons often!
- Allow your crayons to cool and harden before you use.
