Summer Reading @ PCPL

summer-reading-fizz-boom-readCalling all mad scientists!  Join us as we explore science topics from turtle conservation to liquid nitrogen and more.  Spend your summer reading and earn prizes and opportunities for grand prizes.

Youth (ages birth-18) can now register for our Summer Reading Program. Click here to sign up. *If you would like to sign up for one of the programs that requires registration, contact Jen Pace, Youth Services Librarian, at 828-894-8721 x227 or jpace@polklibrary.org.*

KIDS (birth to 5th grade):

  • After you’ve registered, pick up your reading log and BINGO card from Jen, Youth Services Coordinator (in the Children’s Area) at the Main Library or the front desk of the Saluda Community Library.
  • Every time you read for 20 minutes, fill in a space on your reading log. For each 10 spaces you fill in, bring your log to the library for a prize! You can also enter to win one of the grand prizes every time you mark off 5 in a row on your BINGO card (up to 12 times total).
  • The grand prizes are a Frozen set (DVD and book), $25 Game Stop gift card, arts and crafts set, Minecraft LEGO set, sports set (soccer ball, basketball, and football), and summer fun set (water toys and bubbles).
