"Escape the Ordinary" is the theme for the Wautoma Public Library's Summer Reading Program this year! So get your superhero masks on and your capes pressed for a summer of marvelous 
super-duper fun!
Sign-ups begin June 3rd and children Pre-K to 12 years old are invited to take part in our six-week incentive program. 
Children will be given a reading book bag with instructions on how to log their weekly goals of reading, writing, and creative activities. Each week the log can be turned in for small, but wonderful prizes. As an added incentive this 
year, readers who finish all 6 weeks' of goals will receive a plethora of prizes (please see prize chart below). As an extra bonus, the library will have special events and performers (please see event list below). The absolute last day to turn in reading records is July 30th.
Teens and adults can also join in the fun and set an example by reading and filling out a reader recommendation card, thus entering into a weekly drawing for a prize.
Here is a lineup of the awesome performers that are coming to the library thanks to donations by those shown here. Please support them by thanking them or clicking on the links to
their websites. We could not have a Summer Reading Program without their help. 

Thank you sponsors!
