Summer Reading Program has begun!

Are you ready to help us “Build a Better World” this summer?

Begin by signing up at the library or online. Then, pick up your BINGO card at the library. Complete reading and non-reading activities to earn bingos, and finally, bring cards back to the library to enter to win prizes.

*Please note this is the same program being conducted at the Ruth Culver Community Library, so participants may sign up and turn in BINGO cards at either library and may go back and forth for prizes!*

All patrons have an opportunity to “Build a Better World” by donating canned food for the Sauk Prairie Area Food Pantry. The library will be collecting unexpired cans all summer long and donating them at a celebration event, Monday, August 14. The “We CAN Festival” will take place at the new food pantry building 821 Industry Rd. at 6:00PM so save the date!

Thank you to Piggly Wiggly of Sauk City for generously agreeing to match the canned donations!
