Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program

Get excited for the Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program! It kicks off on June 3rd!

“All Together Now” is this year’s theme. The Oldham County Public Library certainly knows how to bring the community together!  The Summer Reading Program has so many events and ways for all ages to enjoy summer reading and coming together. Here are a few key things to know about the summer reading program.

Activity Book

Oldham County Library staff members visited several of the elementary schools and students received their activity books and learned about the program. If your student did not receive an activity book, visit any of the 3 branches to pick one up. The activity book is meant to serve as this summer’s reading log. Readers ages 3+ can check in after 5 days or wait until they have completed all 25 days of reading to collect their beads and brag tag. Reading logs are due on August 12th this summer.

Kick-Off Parties are Back!

We are so excited that we can come back together to celebrate the Summer Reading Program!  Each branch will host a kick-off party this year.  The branch schedules are: LaGrange June 3rd 11am-1pm, Goshen June 6th 4-6pm and South June 8th 4-6pm.

Visit the Library Locations!

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!  There’s a program for everyone whether you enjoy crafts, art, book clubs, science, cooking and more!  Some of the programs require registration and will fill up fast, so take a close look at the calendar. Many outdoor spaces at the branches and surrounding communities will be used this summer, too! The LaGrange Train Museum, Foxhollow Farm, Little Colonel Playhouse, LaGrange Fire Department & Oldham County History Center are all part of OCPL on-the-go this summer! 

Virtual Programming

We are thankful that we can peruse the books inside the library and chat with our favorite librarians.  For those patrons that prefer or need virtual programming, the library is still offering a few this summer. 

Celebration Parties!

This summer, celebrate all of your summer reading at one of the end-of-summer parties.  The parties will be held at Calypso Cover Waterpark at the Northeast YMCA in Louisville. There are 4 different dates this summer: July 22, July 29, July 30 & August 20 (7:30-9:30pm).  Check the calendar of events for more information!

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.
