Program Description


Summer Reading time is here! Yay! Our 6-week Summer Reading Program will start on Tuesday, June 11, at 11:30 am with an in-person, in-house stop-n-go event with hotdog cookout, sponsored by Connect Bank. All Summer Reading kids ages 3-12 are invited to visit with their families between 11:30 and 1:00 pm and pick up a hotdog lunch pack, get their reading bags stuffed with goodies and everything kids need to participate in the 6 weeks of fun to come. Some surprises will also be waiting for the summer kids. Librarians will greet kids and families at the craft stations and hand out “Summer Fun Packs”, the official summer activity and coupon booklet to win prizes this summer. The Summer Fun Pack can be completed at home without attending the in-house weekly program events. This way, kids whose parents aren’t able to bring them to the library can still be part of the library’s Summer Reading Program, participate in the Reading Challenge and win prizes.

This year's Summer Reading motto is "Adventure Begins at Your Library”. All schedule details will soon be available on Facebook at the “Star City Branch Library” page. The complete program brochure will go in print at the end of May and will be part of the Summer Reading gear for everybody to take home during the kick-off event.



The library makes every effort to ensure our programs can be enjoyed by all. If you have any concerns about accessibility or need to request specific accommodations, please contact the library.
