Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program

Get excited for the Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program! It kicks off on May 31st!

“Adventure Begins at Your Library” is the 2024 Summer Reading Program theme. There are certainly plenty of adventures with the Oldham County Public Library!  The Summer Reading Program has so many events and ways for all ages to enjoy summer reading and go on an adventure together. Here are a few key things to know about the summer reading program.


Visit any of the 3 branches to pick up a booklet filled with all of the adventures waiting to be discovered. You will find library news and an events calendar for the summer.  Reading logs can be picked up at the front desk at any branch.

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.  Drop-in at one of the branches on these dates: LaGrange May 31st 6-8pm, Goshen June 4th 4-6pm and Crestwood June 6th 4-6pm.  These are always fun for the community to enjoy activities, crafts and maybe pet a furry friend or two.

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 OCPL on-the-go program will go to places like The Maples Park, South Oldham Fire Department and Alley Loop in LaGrange.

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 pool parties.  The parties will be held at the newly renovated John Black Aquatic Center in LaGrange (Buckner area).

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 other educational materials like the M.I.L.K. Crate or attending a workshop day. Of course, there are books on cds for your summer road trips or DVDs for your rainy days or outdoor movies. We love using the Libby app for audiobooks.

Visit your local branch or reserve some books online today. Get started reading and learning early!
