Posted on Friday, June 12, 2020 at 6:19 am

Despite Coronavirus-related complications, the Centralia Public Library is bringing back one of its most popular and beneficial programs.

Registration has begun for the library’s annual summer reading program. The program lasts through July 31.

This year’s Summer Reading theme is “Imagine Your Story,” and it is directed by the Caitlyn Spears, CPL’s youth librarian.

She is offering two versions of the program, online and in-person.

“Totally online, using the READsquared mobile app,” Spears All you have to do is select the Centralia Public Library as your home library and just follow the instructions.”

“The reading requirements are different for each age range, but everyone has a chance to take home free books,” Spears said. “School age children will have chances to enter for raffles prizes and adults will earn gift certificates from local businesses for completing the program.”

The in-person program does not begin until July.

She described some of the program’s activities.

“In July, we will have three youth crafts, for ages 11 through 18, such as mermaid crowns, unicorn dream catchers, and dragon eggs. These will take place on Tuesdays, July 7, 14 and 28, watch our Facebook page for more information.”
