Summer Reading concludes August 18th!

There is still plenty of time to turn in your summer reading tickets and attend programs here at the library!  Remember, your tickets can be redeemed for gently used books, small toys, t-shirts and raffle tickets for chances at larger prizes.  The real reward is getting lost in a story, discovering details in an illustration, or becoming an expert on a new subject whether it be dinosaurs, ufo sightings, horses, or civil war history!

We also have exciting programs coming up!  Don't forget to join us Sunday July 29th in the Kutztown Park from 2-5 for an afternoon of exciting Civil War history and discussion.  The Summer Reading Club will continue to meet on Wednesdays at 10am at the library until our finale event featuring "Reptile Nightlife" on Wednesday August 15th at 10am at the Bandshell.

Summer Reading Has Begun!

It is time to keep track of all those books you are reading in the hammock, on the beach or at the stadium between innings. Summer Reading has officially begun at the Louisa Gonser Community Library and we have goodies for readers of all ages. Children can turn in their summer reading tickets for small prizes (or save up for t-shirts and other fun items). Teens can use their tickets to enter into drawings for an I-pod touch, a Kindle, a FlipCamera or a gift certificate of their choice. Even adults can get into the spirit, with weekly drawings for goods from local businesses.

Also, be sure to check out the great programs we are offering this summer. Every Wednesday at 10am we are holding special events for school aged children as well as preschool storytimes for the younger tykes. All of our events are listed on our website calendar at
