2021 Summer Reading at Lewiston Public Library

From Lewiston Library

LEWISTON – The 2021 Summer Reading theme for Lewiston Public Library is “Tails and Tales,” and the program will run through Aug. 7, with reading programs for children, teens, and adults.

See the Lewiston Library website for more information and calendars:

KIDS programing features weekly themes, LIVE performers, staff virtual programs, take & make kits, and book & prize giveaways

TEEN programming features Discord gatherings, virtual book groups and games, and book and prize giveaways

ADULT programming features virtual Read ME discussions, author talks, and end-of-summer prizes

This year, children, teen, and adults are using a PASSPORT system to track reading and activities for prizes. Pick up a passport (Kids on the 3rd floor, Teen on the 2nd floor, Adult on the 1st floor — or print your own from our website using the links above), complete any 4 activities, and turn it in to be entered into prize drawings! Children and Teens also get to choose a free book for every passport completed. All ages can complete as many passports they want during the eight weeks of summer reading.
