Summer Reading 2024

Summer reading is back at Siuslaw Public Library! This year's theme is "Read, Renew, Repeat".

Over the next two months, we've got lots of fun and activities for all ages. Kids in Siuslaw and Mapleton schools through 12th grade will get your summer reading packet (and a free book!) at school. For everyone else - including adults - stop by the library to get your summer reading materials starting June 1.

Ages 0-4: Track your reading on a special game board.

Ages 4-12: Track your reading and collect a bead for every day you read at least 20 minutes.

Adults: We've got prizes for adults, too! For every book you read or listen to, movie you watch, etc., you can enter to win a free book in our weekly drawings.
