Summer Programs

We are excited to announce that the library’s summer program is here! We have programs and activities for all ages (even adults). Over the summer, participants will read and do fun activities to earn points. If you earn 1,000 points, you complete the program and your name will be put in a prize drawing. This program is being offered at our branch libraries as well. To track your reading and activities, we are going to be using the READsquared online program.  READsquared can be accessed through your web browser, or the READsquared app. It’s free and easy to use. Click here for details about READsquared and the Luzerne County Library System. If you'd like to view a READsquared tutorial, click here. Starting July 6, we will also be offering virtual programs. Each week we will have videos posted online for our storytimes, crafts, activities, guest presenters, and virtual field trips.  In addition, we’ll have weekly grab-n-go packets for children and teens. These packets will have recipes, activities, instructions for crafts. At times, we will be able to offer the materials to do the crafts. If you’re interested in the summer program, please visit the “Upcoming Events” page on our website.
