Florence Public Library Summer Reading Program

Monday, June 15 – Friday, July 31

Imagine your story this summer at the library!
Read books, do activities and earn chances for prizes.

– Register for summer reading at the library, register by phone (254-793-2102) or email the library at library@florencetex.com
– Pick up a packet at the library with a reading log and other items.
– Start reading! For every 10 minutes you read, color in a circle on the reading log. Someone can read to you too – that counts!
– Each Friday from June 19 – July 31, let us know how many minutes you have read that week. You may come into the library, call us or email us. The top three readers each week will get a choice of a gift certificate to a local business!
– For each 60 minutes you log, bring in your log (or email a photo of it to the library) and you will get a ticket to put in a drawing for the grand prize of your choice at the end of July.
– Each week we’ll also have activity packets you can pick up and complete. Send us a photo of your completed activity and get another ticket for the grand prize drawing.
