Summer Reading 2022

 

Join this year's Summer Reading Program! Go “Beyond the Beaten Path” with the Twin Falls Public Library as we celebrate nature, the wild, and more! Everyone from infants to adults are encouraged to join. All summer, we have a variety of programs, reading challenges, activities and more. Complete the challenges and fill out your reading logs for the chance to win prizes, badges, and bragging rights.

We’re getting some help from Animal Expert Corbin Maxey to kick off the program! Corbin is a nationally recognized animal expert and has been regularly featured on programs like Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Today Show, The Martha Stewart Show, and more! Join us in City Park as Corbin introduces you to more than 15 animals, including his 14-foot albino Burmese Python! Stop by for the show, pick up reading logs for Summer Reading, and get ready to "Read Beyond the Beaten Path!"

Pre-K & Elementary Summer Reading Logs

Beginning June 6th, Pre-K & Elementary Kids can grab their reading logs from the Youth Services Desk, or use the ReaderZone App with code: 77ffb. If they read at least 32 times by the end of the Summer Reading Program (that's 4 days a week for 8 weeks) and turn in the Reading Log by July 30th, they will win a free book, a treat from a local business, and a State Parks pass!

Pre-K Summer Reading Activities

Naturbrary

Pre-K kids and babies should check out Naturbrary! This is a nature-based program for little ones and their caregivers. Every Wednesday beginning June 8th, we’ll meet at the Twin Falls City Park for fun nature activities! We’ll have Storywalks, make mud pies, do art projects, learn about plant life and more!

Strollerbrary

Strollerbrary is a weekly walking group for caregivers of young children. We'll meet every Friday at 10:00 am at a different walking path in Twin Falls, learn a new early literacy concept, and go for a walk! This program is a great way to meet friends, chat with a librarian about any early literacy questions you have, or just enjoy some fresh air with your child.
