SUMMER READING 2021 – READING COLORS YOUR WORLD!
Our 2021 Summer Reading program ended on July 31. Thank you to all the readers and families who participated–we had a total of 62 Youth readers who accomplished 75,699 minutes (that’s 1,261 hours or 52.5 days of reading!)
NO STORYTIME IN AUGUST
We will be taking a break from storytime during the month of August. A selection of past storytime videos can still be viewed on the Princeton Public Library Facebook page.
Here is a list of recent additions to the Youth Services collection. Princeton Public Library staff is also happy to make recommendations for your family!
You can place a hold on any of these titles via PrairieCat, request them by phone 815-875-1331, ext. 220 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2020
Princeton Public Library would like to thank the Friends of the Princeton Public Library for their generous support. In past years, in addition to the Friends, we’ve reached out to other community businesses as summer reading sponsors. This year, however, we felt that we should limit the budget to the amount that the Friends had already set aside for the summer reading program, given the economic stresses due to the pandemic and reduced opportunities for participation in programming and summer reading events. We would also like to thank the Arts of Starved Rock Country Fund for supporting Dan Laib’s virtual program Digging Deeper into Your Imagination: Magic & Art Show by Dan Gogh (funds for this Community Arts Access Grant are partially supported by the Illinois Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts).
