Library’s summer reading program encourages enrollment


The last day to register for the Maryville Public Library’s Summer Reading Program and join nearly 170 kids in grades 1-12 reading for fun and prizes this summer, will be July 11 for library card holders.

All Nodaway County children through sixth grade are eligible to receive a library card funded by the Nodaway County Commissioners.

To register, families can come to the library reception or visit the website at and click on the link to Google Forms. If you’re registering digitally, it’s important that kids in grades one through six stop by to pick up their badge books and kids in grades seven through 12 pick up their calendars to record their reading.

In addition to weekly storytime for infants and toddlers and storytimes for preschoolers, the Summer Reading Program offers special events this summer.

• Tech Scavenger Hunt for second through sixth graders is scheduled for July 16th. Participants will try to find the answers to the clues provided while working with different programs and technological devices and circuits such as Makey-Makey, Osmo, Ozobot and a coding mouse. Registration is required for one of the two available time slots: 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 11 a.m. to noon.

• End of summer reading program party from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, July 30. Refreshments, family games and the collection of prizes they have won by reading throughout the summer will be on the agenda.

Students can register for either event at the front desk or by calling the library at 660.582.5281.
