Summer Reading Program

Lamar Public Library Staff and Volunteers are excited about the programs and activities we have planned and hope you and your young readers will enjoy…“A Universe of Stories!”

Space. The Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the Lamar Public Library as we bring the hidden stories of the universe to town.

Through books, games, musical experiences, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) activities, participants will interact with space in a wide variety of ways.

Learn about our solar system, examine real life moon rocks, discover the universe beyond the planet Earth. Put on your space suit, climb into our rocketship, and blast off into a summer that is out of this world and discover a Universe of Stories!

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

The concept is simple; the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. Your goal is to read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books) to your child before your precious one starts kindergarten. Does it sound hard? Not really if you think about it. If you read just 1 book a night, you will have read about 365 books in a year. That is 730 books in two years and 1,095 books in three years. If you consider that most children start kindergarten at around 5 years of age, you have more time than you think (as long as you start now).

To get started, come to the Library to get more instructions and reading log sheets!
