Summer Learning

Registration for the 2018 Summer Learning Program at Lebanon County Libraries begins Monday, June 4th. Libraries Rock is our state-wide theme. Storytimes and activities will reflect this theme and encourage children to keep reading over the summer months. As a reading incentive, activity sheets are available in all libraries. Prizes for completion vary at each individual library. Funding for the Lebanon County Library System’s Summer Reading Program is provided in part by the United Way of Lebanon County. Additional funding is also provided by local libraries’ Friends groups.
