The Pella Public Library will have a variety of programs for children and teens throughout the summer.

Babies need books! Read eight books to your infant or young child and visit the library four times this summer to get a medal and coupon book. Participating supports healthy reading habits and builds literacy skills while students are on break from school.

Thank you, Friends & Foundation for sponsoring the Library's summer reading programs and prizes, along with our events this summer.

Registration for "Build a Better World" begins Monday, June 5th, and the last day to collect prizes will be Friday, July 21st.

The library will host an open house about the tutoring program from 6 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Rochester Public Library. The online registration form can be filled out and printed from home through the library website,, or at either branch. "You don't have to read to a curriculum". A children's used book sale will be held before and during the Kick-off event from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. TCGPlayer will be in our Community Room with various trading card games, there will be 3D Doodler art and button making in the TeenSpace, and teens can even create a 3D printed model of themselves in the MakerSpace. Come for a night of fun, pick up a reading log, and checkout (or win) some summer reading. PAWS For Reading, yoga classes, movies and LEGO Labs are just a few of the other fun programs that will be happening at the Owasso Library. We hope to see you this summer! Keep in mind to join the conversation online too.
