There will not be a program on July 5th due to the 4th of July Holiday.  You can turn that week’s reading log in at the front desk when completed, or at the next week’s program.  Either way, you will still receive a prize.

How the Program Works:

  1. Children ages 2 to 12 can register at the library between May 30 and June 21.

  2. You will receive a reading log to record the minutes you read during the program.

  3. Bring your completed reading log to the library each week and receive a prize. You will also receive a raffle ticket to enter a drawing for a variety of great prizes, which will be given out at the last program* (you do not need to be present to win).

  4. We will also give away three Kindles as our top prizes. You must meet your reading goal, attend at least one weekly program, and be present at the final program on July 21 to be eligible for the Kindles*.

  5. The library welcomes children of all abilities.

  6. Children 8 and under must attend with an adult.

*Prize drawings will be held at the final program on July 19.

Each Child who registers for Summer Reading will receive a  Youth Explorer Pass.  This pass waives the vehicle entry fee for one vehicle/one day at any Idaho State Park.  Click HERE for more information and a list of Idaho State Parks.
