Discover magical worlds as you Explore Summer Reading with the Library. All ages are welcome on this quest for knowledge, fun and adventure as you Imagine Your Story. The Story is yours to create whether it’s about magical creatures, supernatural powers, chasing rainbows, or elves and fairies that fuels your imagination.
This Year at the Guffey Library we will offer curbside bags for our Summer Reading Program. You can register online for the weeks you choose to participate. The bags will include a craft project for each theme, reading logs, extra instructions for fun projects to do at home, and age appropriate books to go along with the themes. Supplies provided for crafts exclude glue, tape and scissors.

We welcome your photos of your projects. Please send them to us via email so we can post them on our website.
Attention TEENS: visit https://www.cslpreads.org/programs/teen-program/2020-teen-video-challenge/ take the challenge and imagine your story on video!
Throughout the summer we are also promoting “book bucks”. Read a book to your child and have them retell the story to you in their own words. For more advanced readers, book report forms will be available. Have your child earn “book bucks” to accumulate for prizes, compliments of the Friends of the Guffey Library, all through the summer.
We hope that we can all come together in late August at a socially appropriate distance with a pizza party and/or ice cream social.
The Guffey Library’s FREE Summer Reading Program is a GREAT way to keep children interested in reading this summer and… for the rest of their lives. As always, thank you for your support of the Guffey Library and for encouraging your children to relish the joy of reading. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any and all questions.
