Summer Reading 2015

Summer is a time for relaxing and what better way to relax than to read a good book! This summer’s theme is “Read to the Rhythm” and we have lots of programs and activities to go along with reading. There’s something for everyone—this year we have programs for all ages.  Sign-up at the library or online at

"LME Read-to-Me Summer Program" is for birth through Preschool children (entering kindergarten fall 2015). Color in one picture every time you and your Pre-K child enjoy a book together. When 5 pictures are colored in your child will get a prize. When all 15 of the picture are colored in your child will get a book to keep (the library will have on hand a special collection of book from which to choose. Limit one free book per child). Program runs June 1 - July 11.

Story Time for children ages 3 to 5 will be held at 10:00 a.m. on the following Tuesdays: June 9, June 16, June 23, June 30, and July 7. Children must be 3 before June 3rd to participate. Storytime usually lasts approximately 1/2 hour and consists of stories, songs, craft and games.  Please contact the library to sign up so that adequate materials are available at craft time.

The format for K-5th is simple; color one picture for every 15 minutes you read OR for every scheduled LME Library Program you attended. (Visit the LME website at for a calendar for dates and times). Readers may check-in and get a prize after 4 pictures are colored in a single week (Limit 1 check-in and 1 prize per week, per reader. Week runs Sunday to Saturday). Readers may also donate 1 book to Princeville District 326 for use in the grade school library or classrooms during their check-in. Fill in 24 total pictures to be eligible for the pool party. Pool party is at the Princeville Aquatic Center on July 25th from 6p-8p. Frequently asked questions are answered on the back of the log sheet. Program runs June 1 - July 11.
