Children's Summer Reading Program 2011!

School's out and Summer Reading Program sign-up is in full swing at the Collinsville Library! Our theme this year is "One World, Many Stories", and we have many wonderful multi-cultural and country-themed books on display waiting to be checked out.
Kids of any age are welcome to sign up, for your little ones not reading independently you will work with them as their reading mentor to share books and stories. You can sign up by visiting the Library any time we are open, and all kids receive a new book bag for committing to the program.
When your child signs up, you will receive a calendar with all of the exciting events we have set up for you this summer, but here's a look at our first outdoor program of the summer!
Thursday, June 2nd 12-2pm
