Build a Better World with Summer Reading
Posted Date: 6/29/2017

School may be out, but don’t let all the work you did this year crumble to ruins! Continue building your brain powers with summer reading at the Longview Public Library. Sign up on June 23 to start logging your reading and earning virtual badges. Read or listen to any book that you like! If you reach the Super Reader level by August 5, you’ll win a fun prize package including a free book, T-shirt, and ticket to the Southwest Washington Fair.

In addition to the reading challenge, we have a truckload of exciting activities and events planned for kids and families, all exploring ways to “Build a Better World” through construction, gardening, recycling, and community involvement. Registration is not required, and you don’t need a library card—but we can help you get one!

The Youth Summer Reading program is aimed at kids pre-school through 5th Grade. We also have programs for babies and toddlers, middle and high schoolers, and for the first time ever, adults! Find out more at or call 360.442.5300.

All summer reading activities are free, thanks to the support of the Longview Library Foundation, Friends of the Longview Public Library, Early Bird Lions, Foster Farms, Friends of the Shay Locomotive, City of Longview Public Works, Southwest Washington Fair, and our hard-working volunteers.
