Fort Scott Public Library Youth Summer Reading Program

Sign Up for Youth Summer Reading May 26 – 29
The 2020 Youth Summer Reading Registration form is now open online at this link. Fort Scott Public Library will begin accepting physical summer reading registrations on May 26. Everyone wishing to sign up for summer reading, online or in person, for ages birth – 12th grade should plan to stop by the library for safe, socially-distanced packet pickups May 26 – 27 from 3 – 4 pm or May 28 – 29 from 10 – 11 am in the south parking lot, right off of National Ave. Drivers should pull up beside the table, remain in their cars, and tell Miss Val how many packets they need, and for what age groups. Miss Val will place the bags at the end of the table, retreat to a safe distance, and allow drivers to reach out and grab their items. If those hours will not work for you (you may have someone else pick up packets for you), or in the case of inclement weather, call the library or email Miss Val (see below) to set up an appointment for pickup. If you plan to pick up for a daycare or other large group, please call or email to schedule an appointment and designate the number and ages of the children when you call, as we will provide special packets to these groups. You may email Miss Val at or call the library at (620) 223-2882.
The 2020 youth summer reading program will run from June 1 – August 5. The majority of the program will be offered online. Some physical activities, crafts, and reading rewards will also be available for curbside pickup throughout the summer. Storytelling videos will be offered on Zoom, Facebook, and YouTube, and craft demonstration videos will be offered on YouTube and Facebook, with guest readers and demonstrators in addition to Miss Val. Our performers, Storyteller Will Stuck and Magician Jeff Quinn, will provide pre-recorded performances that we will then share with our patrons during a limited viewing time. The calendars on our website and Facebook events page will have listings for all summer reading events. We hope to offer in-person activity & prize packet pickups at a minimum of every other week. Check often on the library’s website or Facebook page for news, videos, and updates. You may sign up for email updates here. Stay tuned for adult summer reading details, coming soon!
