Summer Reading

Programs offered at

Waushara County Libraries


The 2019 Library Summer Reading Theme is A Universe of Stories. All eight Waushara County Libraries are planning fun events for children of all ages to participate in.

Just like exercising keeps muscles in shape, reading keeps the brain in shape. If you don’t exercise, you lose muscle, and if you don’t read, you will lose literacy skills. Instead of kids having the Summer Slide of losing what they learned during the school year, the Waushara County Public Libraries aim to offer a variety of activities and knowledge to keep increasing learning throughout the summer.

Here is an overview of each summer program being offered in Waushara County for Summer 2019:
