This post contains general information about the Summer Reading Program and 2019 dates.

Kick off  summer with the Oldham County Public Library Summer Reading Program!

1. The Learning Experiences!
Our librarians sure know how to make reading and learning super fun! They have a schedule jam-packed with different activities. The 2019 Theme is "A Universe of Stories." Readers can sign up for some hands-on learning, stories and more. There are different activities for different ages each week. Program ages begin at babies all the way up to adults. We plan to enjoy the math and science enrichment at the Space Pioneer program.  Teens and adults should not miss out on the calendar full of great programs this summer! *Special tip for families: sign ups are required for some of these programs and they usually open one week prior to each class. Check the website early in the morning or watch Facebook!

2. Family Programs!
There are a lot of programs that the kids get to do alone with the great librarians, but there are also events planned for the entire family to enjoy together.  Mark your calendars with the family concerts and movies.  We, of course, like that summer reading means that families can read together too!

3. The Special Guests!
Expect to see popular guests return like Madcap Puppets and Silly Safaris.  Oooh and ahh at Wonder Wheels and sing a long with Jim Gill. *Special tip for families: Some of these shows are first come, first serve, so make sure you watch the schedule and arrive early!

Not only is reading beneficial for development and continuous learning over the summer break, but the kids get rewarded for their effort!  Track your daily reading on your reading log. For every five days of reading, you earn a brag tag and a summer attraction coupon. Complete five sets of days and earn a special brag tag, a prize, and a pool party pass. Pool parties are at the Oldham County Aquatic Center!  Pool parties are scheduled the 2019 summer by elementary schools for July 29th, August 5th and 7th.  Make sure you get a pass for your pool party date!  (The parties, of course, include preschool, homeschool, private and nearby county schools, too.)

5. More and More Fun!
We love that the program includes evening and drop-in activities with such things as crafts, legos, family story time and more.  Everyone loves a good indoor movie when it's just too hot or gloomy outside.  The library has some great films lined up!  *Special tip for families: get comfy during the movie!  Bring some blankets, pillows and snacks.  Enjoy that time together!

  2. Oldham County offers fantastic library resources and a friendly, helpful library staff. My only reservation is the Crestwood Library is inadequate in terms of physical size and desperately requires a new building.
