On your mark, get set, GO!

This year, we double dare you to join us for our 90's Nickelodeon themed summer reading and activity program! Starting June 10th, come in to the library to pick up a reading log, passport, and participation prize. For the pages you read or qualifying activities you participate in, you earn a ticket to enter into our raffles for BIG prizes. A raffle ticket is awarded for the pages you read, event you attend, or every activity accomplished. And for every week you turn in your reading log, you get one of our participation prizes. These are different for everyweek.

 

And with our Community Scavenger Hunt and Weekly Field Trips, you can explore our town and the stores and community buildings in Millstadt. Scroll to the bottom of the page to learn more about both, and

to see our full activity calendar, themes, and field trips.

Remember! There is no library card needed to participate in our program or any of our programs and there are no costs. (We do ask for RSVPs for the field trips.)

 

Reading Logs

Reading Logs will be available at the library starting June 10th and below. We also have listed the amount of pages read that earn you a ticket. 

0 to 10 years old: 1 Ticket = 50 Pages
11 to 17 years old: 1 Ticket = 150 Pages
18+ years old: 1 Ticket = 250 Pages

Children's, Teen, and Adult Reading Log Downloadable PDF

Raffle Winners will be announced Wednesday, July 24th!

Our Double Dare Party will be held on Saturday, July 20 (more info to come soon!)

Community Scavenger Hunt

When you stop by the Library to get your first reading log and welcome kit for the SRAP (that's short for Summer Read and Activity Program,) we'll also offer you the Community Scavenger Hunt passport.

With this passport and accompanying map, you can collect Nickelodeon characters from participating businesses around Millstadt! All participating businesses will be listed on the map, and will have a Nickelodeon character visible in their window.

 

There are no purchases required when you go to visit these locations. This is an opportunity to meet the great people who run the businesses and organizations in our wonderful little Village.

 

Those that complete the scavenger hunt get a special prize and entered into a special raffle. There are over 25 stops, so happy traveling!

Field Trips

Reading is an important skill and one that we need for daily life and for the future. However, it's important that we mix what we read on our own with practical education and that we learn how things are done to - not just read about them.

We are teaming up with five places to go on field trips, one every Thursday at 10 a.m. during SRAP.

You'll see the places listed in the calendar below, along with a link. Please use those links to learn more about the field trip and to RSVP. Please have your RSVP in by the Thursday of the week before the trip.

You can do so through the link or with the library by coming in or calling us at 618-476-1887.

Everyone will meet at the Field Trip location - NOT at the library. All ages are welcome to attend, but parents are expected to stay with their children during the trip. The Field Trip presentations will start promptly at 10 a.m. and will last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the Field Trip host.
