Championing Discovery, Creativity, and Community Connection

What is Summer Reading Program?

Every year our library celebrates a love of reading with the kids of the community. With stories, activities, and art we encourage kids to make new friends, find books that inspire them, and learn something new. This year with our theme "Adventure Begins at your Library", we want to invite all of our patrons to find adventure in reading. Through books featuring epic fantasies to discovering a new favorite recipe, we can help you find the adventure your heart is craving!

We are so excited to announce our new partnership with the University of Missouri Extension Office 4-H program!  We are now an afterschool 4-H club which means we can offer area youth more opportunities to learn and explore!
