Summer Reading 2015

reading at the lake

Enrollment for Summer Reading 2015 will begin on Monday May 18th. Summer Reading will go from the week of June 1st through the end of July. Each week those enrolled in Summer Reading will complete a list of tasks for that week, then the following week check in at the library for a new set of tasks and get a prize for the previous week. Those who complete six (6) of the check sheets by the 27th of July will be invited to a free day at the Haysville Pool on the 1st of August. The Annual Ice Cream Social will be held on the 1st of August, as well, at 6:30 PM. The Social is free for all to attend.

Can't make it in to pick up your reading activity sheets?


Week 8 will be a catch up week, so if you've missed a week or two and would like to still complete them for a prize you can do so. Starting the week of July 27th you can come in to pick up your certificate for participating in Summer Reading!

Summer Workshops

We will be hosting a variety of summer workshops. You can enroll for the workshops now and the cost is $2 per child. Space in each workshop is limited to 12 people. Between May 18th and June 1st each child can only be signed up for two workshops to give everyone an equal opportunity. After June 1st all remaining spaces will be open to anyone who wishes to sign up. Children 8 and under should have a parent attend with them. The canvas painting workshop was intended to be two seperate workshops, so there are still spots available for the second canvas painting.
