Research shows the best investment to bridging the gap between school years is a high quality summer reading program. Every summer, the Degenstein Community Library encourages people of all ages to read. This year’s theme is “Tails & Tales.”

Help us build a community of readers by being a sponsor through Raise the Region.

Our Summer Reading Program is 8 weeks long and includes numerous activities each week. Last year, we had 114 children participate even in a mist of a pandemic with only limited programming available! Planning has already begun for an exciting animal and story program. We are featuring events like Zoo America, P.T. Reptiles, Ryan the Bug Man, and a special Tail Wise program. We offer small incentives each week as reading goals are met, as well as grand prizes for each age level at the end of the Summer Reading Program.

This is where you can help! We are seeking donations for incentives as well as monetary sponsorships to be used towards books, programming materials and consumable supplies. On behalf of the library and the community, we thank you in advance for being a proud supporter of literacy and lifelong learning.

But more importantly, 100% of your financial contribution will directly benefit the hundreds of children and adults in our community.

Thank you! And Happy Reading!
