What are YOU doing this Summer?

This Summer is going to be OUT OF THIS WORLD at your library! We have Summer Reading Programs for all ages. 

Tablets, lego sets, telescopes, and more awesome prizes will be awarded to lucky finishers!

Stay tuned for more details.

Follow These Steps

COMING SOON for 2019: Pick up a bingo gameboard for each participant from your nearest library or print one out here. 

Start playing!  Complete your bingo gameboard and turn it in by July 31st.


What could I win? Tell me more about the prizes!

Prizes vary participant age. Ask a librarian at your home branch for more details!


Should I register at each branch I use?  

No, you only need to register one time for the Summer Reading Program.


I am visiting Porter County and do not have a library card. May I still participate? 

Absolutely! You do not need a library card or to be a resident to participate in library programs.


Did I win a raffle prize?

We hope so! All raffle prize winners will be notified by August 1st. There are completion prizes for all children and teens.
