Summer Reading Program

We proudly announce our Summer Reading Program “Imagine Your Story” will take place June 1st to July 14th! The program looks a little different this year, but we have lots of fun things planned.

No matter your age we have a challenge for you. Each branch will have a drawing for one adult winner and one child winner for a brand new Kindle Fire Tablet and the only way to enter is to READ!

To participate in our reading program, register at

Starting June 1st you can start logging minutes read to earn prizes, including entries into the Kindle Fire drawing.

We won’t be having performers this year but we will have a ton of Virtual Library Programs each week. Keep watch on our Facebook page or contact one of the PMRLS branches to get a schedule of programs. Each week we will have virtual storytimes, take home craft kits to go along with a virtual craft time, and so much more!
