Summer Reading Challenge
May 16th—August 5th

The William F. Laman Public Library System challenges YOU to spend time reading, learning, exploring and energizing this summer.  Attend library events, explore our services, read and explore our community. The Summer Reading Challenge is not only fun; your participation will make you eligible for prize drawings throughout the summer!

Your friends at Laman Library want to know...
Are You Up To The CHALLENGE?


Here are just a few of the Summer Reading Challenges

  • Show us your library card
  • Read or listen to a book
  • Attend a library event
  • Bring a friend to the library
  • Visit a park
  • Register to Vote

Help us meet our community-wide goal of reading at least 500,000 books this summer! If we meet this goal, Laman Library System will hold a fine-free extravaganza September 1-10, 2016; if you owe fines, come visit us and we will waive them! You will have a clean slate!

There are events and activities for EVERYONE!! Check our online calendar to see all the free things to do at the library this summer.
