Washington Carnegie Public Library



Parents, kids, teens and expectant moms (and dads)! Sign up for the Youth Summer Reading Program “Libraries Rock” at WCPL. In order to complete the program we encourage you to sign up by June 10th. We accept ages birth through senior year of high school! This year we have a special program to encourage reading to your “baby bump”. School-age participants will complete a reading Bingo made up of reading, attending programs, using Library resources, etc. Baby bumps and preschoolers will have a reading record to record so many minutes of reading per day. Program runs through July 7th at which time you turn in your completed bingos and reading records for a free book + a completion packet full of goodies. The programs are listed as events on our Facebook page so be sure to check them out! While registration is required for the youth summer reading program the events are open to anyone. We want to thank our loyal and amazing sponsors! German American BankPerdue FarmsGrain Processing CorporationNasco Industries, Inc.DLC Media, Inc. and an anonymous donor.
