Summer Reading Program 2020


Welcome to the Petersburg Public Library’s 2020 Summer Reading Program for children and teens! We are so glad you are here! While the library looks a lot different than it normally does, we are pleased to offer an alternative to in person challenges and activities. The program this summer will be virtual in nature with storytimes, a magic show from a favorite magician, Jonathan Austin, reading and writing challenges and prizes awarded for participation!

To sign up for the virtual summer reading program complete this google form here or email .

Our summer reading program will be divided into two parts:

Part One: Reading Challenge –  Children, alongside their families, will record the books they read over the summer on a log that will be turned in at the end of the summer.

Part Two:  6 week “Imagine Your Story” – themed weekly writing and art challenges. Challenges can be typed or handwritten and can be emailed to .
