Summer Reading Program 2021

The 2021 Lake Mills Public Library Summer Reading Program theme is “Reading Colors Your World.” The program will run June 14-July 29, so kids make sure you stop in ANYTIME during the summer to reach your goals.
The program includes: Library Lambs (newborn-preschool), school-age (five-12) and young adult (12-18 or students who have completed fifth-12th grade). Stop into the library to sign up and get your bag containing a free book and bookmarks.
The library has a fantastic program lined-up with many great activities planned. The theme of “colors” will explore humanity, nature, culture and science as well as developing programming that demonstrates how the public library and reading can expand your world through kindness, growth, and community. Library patrons young and old will be encouraged to be creative, try new things, explore art and find beauty in diversity.
All the activities are completely FREE thanks to generous sponsors. Please sign up for all events in advance, sign-up sheets are at the library.
