Summer Reading Program & Scholastic Book Fair

Thank you to everyone who has participated in the Summer Reading Program! We had a great time at our summer-end party with Silly Safaris! Here are a few pictures from the program:

Don’t forget: July 22-26 is our Scholastic Book Fair week! If you have Book Bucks, you may use them for books. We will also accept cash or check for school supplies and other items. Book Bucks were generously provided through a Round Up grant from Orange County REMC. Thank you Orange County REMC!

Farmer’s Market on June 8

The parking lot is still available (Thank you, DeWitt Insurance!) and the rain chances are low Saturday morning so the Farmers Market/Plant Swap is still on!

The library is offering a place for those with extra produce, flowers & plants to connect with those that want to purchase local products. The library is not responsible for the quality, availability or condition of what is offered nor is it profiting in any way. The hope is to bring those that have and don’t need and those that need and don’t have together.

Set up in the area to the west of the library and behind DeWitt Insurance at the corner of 37 & Water St. & be ready for business at 10 AM. We’ll run till 2 pm or till everything is gone…which ever comes first. If no one sets up, then it’s canceled. Please don’t call the library to ask. The staff cannot see the parking lot and won’t be able to monitor it. There will be representatives from the library in the lot.

Scholastic Book Fair is coming to the Paoli Public Library!

You’re invited to join us on a summer long adventure! We’re reading children’s books all summer long to earn book bucks. Why? Because the Scholastic Book Fair is coming to the library! When we read the books, we earn book bucks. Then, we can use the book bucks to buy books from the book fair!

The Scholastic Book Fair will be here during the week of July 22 – July 26.

Join us for this special Summer Reading Program in June and July! Sign ups are throughout the month of May. We hope to see you here!

We want to thank REMC for their grant for this! Without their help, we would not be able to have book bucks or the Scholastic Book Fair. Thank you so much REMC!

Summer Reading Challenge for Adults and Teens

We’ve started our Summer Reading Challenge for Adults and Teens! Stop by the library to get a challenge card. Read one book per category; have the card stamped by the library for each book that you read; and when your card is filled, you could win a prize! The deadline for the Reading Challenge is Monday, September 9, so there’s plenty of time to read.
