This year’s Summer Reading theme is fitness and health. It starts June 1st and ends July 16th.

The library has a lot of activities planned and you’ll find all of them on the Calendar page. Highlights are a Movie Night at the library on June 3rd to kick off the summer, a “Focus on the Fifties” Family Day on June 18th, a Magic Show the morning of June 22nd at West Elementary, and a Sportstacular Family Day on July 16th.

On Your Mark, Get Set… Read! is the Children’s program. Participants will need to read 10 books and participate in two of the library’s activity days to earn a 5$ gift card to local restaurants.

Get in the Game… Read! is the Teen program. Teens must fill out an entry slip for each book they read to be in the drawing for a gift card to a local restaurant.

Exercise Your Mind… Read! is the Adult program. Adults must fill out an entry slip for each book they read to be in the drawing for a gift card to a local restaurant.

The Friends of Sidney Public Library are providing the funding for the Summer Reading programs and activities.
