Summer Reading Program begins soon

It’s time for Summer Reading at Muhlenberg County Public Libraries! This year’s Build a Better World theme includes opportunities for all ages.

The annual Summer Reading Program is designed to keep students and adults reading even through the summer break as well as provide fun, safe things to do while school is out.

The library has several opportunities planned this year for all age groups. The Summer Reading Program runs for four weeks throughout the month of June.

Children’s programs will be held at both the Central City branch of the library and the temporary Harbin Memorial location at Old National Bank in Greenville. Children may attend programs at either location. Programming begins June 5.

The schedule for children’s programming is as follows:

  • 18 months through 5 years old – Mondays at 10:30 a.m. at Harbin Memorial and Thursdays at 10:30 a.m. at Central City
  • Kindergarten through second grade – Mondays at 1 p.m. at Harbin Memorial and Thursdays at 1 p.m. at Central City
  • Third through fifth grade – Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m. at Harbin Memorial and Fridays at 10:30 a.m. at Central City

Program topics will include Construction Zone, Tower Power, Hammer Time and Build a Better Meal.

Teens (sixth through 12th grade) will also have the opportunity to attend programs in both Greenville and Central City. Teen programs will take place at Central City on Mondays at 2 p.m. Topics for Central City programs include Build a Better Landscape, Build a Better Future, Build a Better Self and Build a Better Meal. Greenville programs will be held on Tuesdays at 1 p.m. at Thistle Cottage with topics including Upcycling, Tech, Gardening and Build a Better Meal.
