Summer learning program begins

We all know how important it is to continue learning throughout the summer (and all year long)! The 2024 Summer Learning Program with Polk County Public Libraries runs for eight weeks, from June 10th to August 4th.

Kids and teens (up to rising 12th graders) can sign up starting June 10th at Columbus Library or Saluda Library. After you sign up, you will receive a packet that contains a brag tag necklace to start your collection, eight learning goal bookmarks, and a list of learning goal ideas. Each week, set and achieve two learning goals and write your goals on the bookmark. Then return your completed bookmark the following week for a new brag tag, an entry into our weekly prize drawing, and an entry into our grand prize drawings!

Adults do not need to sign up, but can complete up to 25 challenges over the eight week period. The challenge card can be picked up at Columbus Library or Saluda Library starting June 10th. Bring your card into the library between June 17th and August 10th to submit your completed challenges. After you complete five challenges, you will receive a small prize and an entry into the grand prize drawing. For every additional five challenges you complete, earn another entry into the grand prize drawing.

Grand prize winners will be announced the week of August 12th.
