Summer Reading Program

The Summer Reading Program will began the week of June 27 and will end on Thursday, August 11. Books can be checked out from the library every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon. New this year, we will offer afternoon and evening hours every other Monday. Monday hours will be 1:00 to 6:00 p.m.

The summer reading program works in the following way: Students can come to the library any Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday morning: or they can come the new Monday evenings and check out two books. Once those books are read and the students are ready to take an Accelerated Reader Test, they can come back to the library on the designated days and take their AR test in the library. The library computers will be the only computers utilized for the summer program. When the library books are returned, new ones may be checked out. There are no due dates during the summer reading program. All books checked out during the summer must be returned by the beginning of school in September

Please note that students coming to the library are to be accompanied by an adult and the adult must remain at school. Students cannot be dropped off and picked up later. Time and space only allows students to take a test and choose books to check out.

Any questions concerning the summer reading program can be directed to Mrs. Theresa Sabetta, librarian at 570-654-7982.
