Summer at LPL

imagine your story horizontal bannerWelcome to a busy summer that’s bound to stretch your boundaries from the folks at the LPL.
Everybody has had to use their creative juices plenty since March, indeed.
So here we go for two summer months of virtual events, challenges and more!

Have you Joined Our Reading Program?

Imagine Your Stories is the theme for this year’s reading adventures for the Children’s, Teen and Adult reading clubs. Read Squared will provide the spot to log in so you can join the proper club and chart your progress for badges and prizes.familyreadingwcartoons

And every Monday, kids who are signed up can pick up a Grab & Go packet full of craft materials that match the theme for that week that they can do at home.

Kids who log their reading and activities online can win prizes including a new bike, tickets to the MOST or one of 8 fun filled baskets! Adults and teens can win prizes too.
