Happy Independance Day from the Upper Skagit Library! The Library will be closed on Wednesday, July 4th, and will be open regular hours on Friday, July 6th, 10-5pm.

Summer Reading Program!

Summer is upon us and we're loving having an increase of children and families visiting the library! Did you know that kids can sign up for Summer Reading ANYTIME during the summer? Those that read and report at least 800 minutes by August 25th will earn a paperback book. In addition, each finished reading log also enters you into a grand prize drawing for a $50 Amazon Gift Card! There will be multiple-runner-up prizes!

STEAM programs at the library have been a big hit!

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math


The Upper Skagit Library is an excited recipient of the Children's Book Project Grant Award from the Pilcrow Foundation. The Upper Skagit Library Foundation contributed $400, which the Pilcrow Foundation matched 2:1.

This award includes more than $1,200 worth of new hardcover books for children and teens. In addition, we received a generous donation of more than $400 worth of math and science books from Mr. Hal Berenson and Mrs. Laura Ackerman of Colorado. KIDS, THIS MEANS WE HAVE 92 NEW BOOKS FOR YOU TO PERUSE!

The Pilcrow Foundation recognizes the importance of public libraries in rural communities. Providing quality children's books to rural public libraries ensures an opportunity for active engagement within the community and lifelong learning.
