Louisburg Library has been hosting summer reading programs for decades. The program looked much different in the early days with paper logs just for the kids. These days, the library has more than 100 events over 8 weeks for KIDS, TEENS, & ADULTS. With so much to do over the summer, SummerBASH encourages readers of all ages to keep reading! Readers can sign up and log online what they are reading to earn prizes.
It's definitely not just for kids anymore...SummerBASH has something for everyone!
Beginning May 15, readers of ALL ages can sign up at Louisburg Library or visit our website at www.louisburglibrary.org. While there will be a little change in the look of SummerBASH online, the program is the same. Take a tour and you will see that you can still register for the program and events, log what you are reading and look at event photos.
