Learning at the Ellettsville Branch Library!

Eager learners at the Library!Summer Reading programs are designed to help children retain their reading, writing and math skills throughout the summer. Of course reading is an emphasis, but programs have so much to offer that all skills are tended to at some point. These children demonstrate the eager learning we saw all summer long at the public library.

Readers are "digging in" at the Ellettsville Branch Library!

The Ellettsville Branch library has given out over 800 summer reading game boards in the first two weeks of the program! 

Families are digging into the collections and taking home massive amounts of materials to enjoy.

The summer is all about freedom of choice and the staff at the library loves to help readers find good books.

If you have a struggling reader or someone who has read everything, ask us for help. We specialize in finding the right book for the right person at the right time!

Happy summer!
