Summer Reading program held annually
Reading activities offered for all ages
Readers of all ages are invited to participate in Crete Public Library's summer reading program, typically announced in May with a kickoff event to follow.
Youth activities in June and July may include games and activities, art projects, story times, guest entertainment and authors, reading challenges, and more. All activities and programs are open to children free of charge, but registration is required in order for staff to adequately prepare library spaces and materials. Forms and calendars are made available at the library and online when programs are announced. Additional activities and reading challenges may be offered for adult patrons.
Summer Reading participants age 7 and under need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian during Summer Reading activities. The Library encourages parents and guardians to arrange safe escort to and from programs. Library staff is not responsible for children before and after programs.
For more information, stop by or call the library, or email, Crete Public Library.
