Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program

The Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program started!

“Tails & Tales” is this year’s theme. If you like to judge a book by its cover, this theme looks fun and exciting! Here are a few key things to know about the summer reading program.


Activity Book

Hopefully, by now, you have received an activity book in the mail. If you did not receive one in the mail, visit any of the 3 branches to pick one up. The activity book is meant to serve as this summer’s reading log. This year’s book is filled with 52 pages of activities. Preschool and elementary aged readers can check in after 5 days or wait until they have completed all 25 days of reading to collect their prizes. 

Library Locations are open!

Unlike last summer, all three locations are open for inside browsing and reading! Curbside pick-up is still available as well as the drive-thru at LaGrange. Get a stack of books and start reading. The summer reading program is for all ages, so come on Mom and Dad – get reading too!

Virtual Programming

We are thankful that we can peruse the books inside the library and chat with our favorite librarians, but at this time, the programs are still virtual.  The library still has some exciting weekly events planned as well as some returning favorite performers and special guests.  Be sure to sign-up for the virtual events.

Grab & Go Craft Kids

These will be available weekly on Tuesdays throughout the summer. Pick up a kit at any location. They will also be available at the LaGrange Elementary School feeding site. Coming up, you can expect possums, elephants and other fun creatures!

Take More Than Books Home

We have a great public library in Oldham County. This summer, add some additional learning to your day, by checking out a Science at Home Kit or M.I.L.K. Crate. Learn more about the Mobile Internet Library Kit Crate here and the Do Science at Home Kit here. Of course, there are books on cds for your summer road trips or DVDs for your rainy days or outdoor movies.

Visit your local branch or reserve some books online today. The school summer break is a short one this year, so get started reading and learning early!
