Library's summer reading program begins

Library Director Katherine Elchert and Public Service Director Claire Parrish had a blast getting families signed up for summer reading.


The Rice Lake Public Library's summer reading program has begun for all ages.

Children up to age 12 will set a goal for how many books they want to read all summer long, collecting prizes at their halfway point and when they reach their goal. Teens and adults will be challenged to complete activities on a bingo card to be entered to win a grand prize at the end of summer. Up to six bingo cards can be completed by teen and adult participants. All programs will be available online at, by downloading the Beanstack app, or by completing a paper version.

Anyone with children can request Grab & Go craft bags, which will change each week, with simple activities for kids of all ages. Most supplies provided. For adults and teens, check out the  Take & Make bags. Experience Kits are available for patrons of all ages. Kits include an activity of some sort, from embroidery to cake decorating, games for a variety of ages, and much more. To find a full list of kits, check out the library website or search ‘Experience Kits’ on its catalog.

A variety of virtual programs are available the library social media channels. Patrons can also find a wealth of resources at, under the “At Home Resources” tab.
