North Webster Community Public Library — Summer Reading Registration Starts Soon
NORTH WEBSTER — Do you enjoy reading, would you like to earn prizes for reading and are you interested in connecting with your community?
If so, consider joining the North Webster Community Public Library’s Summer Reading Program. And for the first time, NWCPL’s Summer Reading Program will be open to readers of all ages — children, teens and adults.
This year’s theme is “All Together Now” and the library is excited to promote reading, not only as a solo activity, but as a way to connect to other people. Read books together as a family or read to learn about new languages or cultures — all these and more fit with this year’s reading theme. Plus, the library is planning several cooperative community challenges, so stay tuned for ways you can get involved and connect with your community.
Early registration begins Monday, May 22, so stop by the library soon if you have any questions or you would like to learn more about the summer reading program.
The following activities are set to take place at the library. Attendees do not need a library card to participate.
