Library patrons are asked to collect their prizes from the Public Library of Commerce’s Summer Reading Program by Saturday, July 30. children to “continue to follow your books and continue your excellent work”.
- The library continues to offer free lunches until the end of July for children 18 and under.

Children are encouraged to read five books from the Museum’s list and then return their completed reading journal signed by a parent to the Museum by September 1 to receive prizes. Free admission to the Museum will be granted to those who hand in the completed diary in person. Those unable to come in person can email their journal to Alice Volger at [email protected] Be sure to include an address where prizes can be sent. Many of the books on the reading list are available at the Library of Commerce or through the PINES system; and some may be books the kids have read before, like the Percy Jackson series.
