2020 Summer Reading Programs
June 1 - August 28
Cook Public Library launches its adapted summer reading program on June 1, 2020. During the next three months the library will provide a range of socially distanced activities for children, teens and adults to encourage and support a love of reading. Participants can win prizes for reaching their reading goals.
Children can participate in a reading Bingo game, teens are trying a blackout grid style game, and adults are challenged to read books from various genres. All games are available to print below or by contacting the Cook Public Library.
Due to COVID-19, there are no planned summer events at the library. Patrons are encouraged to use curbside pickup and online resources until the library is able to open.
Library Director Crystal Phillips understands the library’s contribution to the community this summer. “Now more than ever our library is committed to supporting lifelong learning and educational enrichment for all families,” said Phillips.
The Friends of the Cook Public Library will use monetary reserves to fund small prizes for summer reading participants. “We’ve had great support in prior years,” said Friends treasurer, Kristi Sopoci. “This summer we’re not asking for funds. We can support Cook Library patrons and our community with our small savings.”
