Summer Reading, Imagine Your Story, starts at Pawhuska Public Library on June 15, 2020.

Due to social distancing, a major focus of this year’s reading program will be handouts of book n’ craft bags, a writing contest, and prizes.

Elementary Reading Program

Each child kindergarten through fifth grade may come to the library Monday June 15 through Friday June 26 and pick up a bag containing a book, a craft and a comic picture page. One book n’ craft bag per child, total. Books and crafts in the bags are free for children to keep.

Prizes will be available for writing a story using the picture page included in the bag, or for sending a photo of the craft you make to pawhuska.library@gmail.com. Prizes include coupons from Sonic Corporation and grab bag items. The over-all winning story, and craft photo, will be published in the Pawhuska Journal-Capital.

Teen Summer Reading and Adult Summer Reading

Teens and adults reading at least six books during summer 2020 June 15 – August 15 will get their names in a drawing for a gift certificate from a local Pawhuska business. One teen winner 12 – 17 years old, and one adult winner.
