Summer Learning Program

The Montour Falls Library will be hosting its first annual 6-week Summer Learning Program titled “Our Universe.” Each week the students can visit the library for a different space-related activity and a chance to win prizes. This educational program is designed to keep students motivated to read and learn over the summer break. The library will host a weekly program on Fridays July 12th – August 16th from 3-4pm (unless otherwise noted) featuring games, crafts, and informational speakers.

  • Students are not required to attend Friday programs. The only requirement is that students track how many hours and total books they read over the course of the six-week program.
  • What counts? Books, audiobooks, and graphic novels all count towards your goal! For every 5 hours of reading (or listening), students win a prize.
  • If a student is not attending a Friday program, please stop in during the week to update staff on reading progress.
  • If a student will be attending a Friday program, let staff know 4 days in advance to ensure we have the proper amount of food and program materials.
  • Every time a book is finished, students will add a circle to our growing bookworm at the Summer Learning Station.
  • Extra reading logs will be kept at the Summer Learning Station, as well as optional weekly activities students can participate in to win prizes.
  • Prizes are awarded by Levels (see next page). The colored stickers indicate what level the reader must get to in order to choose that prize.
  • Our top readers will be announced on Friday, August 16th at the Summer Learning Celebration (Havana Glen, 4-6pm) and will win one of three grand prizes. Students do not have to be present to win but won’t want to miss out on the party!
  • All participants will receive a certificate at the end of the program.
  • If you have any questions or would like to volunteer at any of these events, please call the library at (607) 535-7489 or contact Kelly Povero via email:
