Welcome to the Piedmont Public Library
Tuesday, July 29th - All-You-Can-Create Science Bar
Did you miss one of the experiments this summer? Or is there one that was so much fun you want to do it again? On this 9th week of summer reading, we'll give you the chance to do it again! We get to use up our extra supplies, and you get to have science fun one more time! Drop by any time between the hours of 10am and 2pm.
It's Time for Summer Reading!
20 minutes of reading a day will help kids maintain their end of school year reading level, and will earn them fun prizes from the Piedmont Public Library.
Come by the Library any time to pick up a book bag or backpack containing a reading log. Put a sticker on the log for each day that you read at least 20 minutes. After 7 days of reading, you will have earned one prize of your choice from our Summer Reading Store!
Continue counting the days that you read through the 31st of July.
Each Tuesday we offer a different science themed activity for kids of all ages. The activities are available from 10am to 2pm, on a 'come and go' basis.
This summer we want to involve the entire family in reading and talking about books. So, in addition to the individual reading program, families can participate in the Family Summer Reading program. Each Thursday in June at 6:30pm we have activities for the family, and families can check out one of our new Family Reading bags to take home and play with together. Attendance at a library program and completion of an Family Reading activity bag qualifies the family to choose a family reward from our Reading 'store'
Check our Event Calendar to see what's going on this week!
