Summer Reading Programs

It will be summer soon and time to enjoy all the excitement and adventure that is the Brookings Public Library's Summer Reading Programs.  Dig into Reading is the theme for the Children's program, Beneath the Surface is the Teen  program, and Groundbreaking Reading is the adult theme.

Due to the number of snow make-up days the school district has to contend with, registration for the Library’s SRPs begin on Tuesday, May 28 at 3:30 pm.  That’s a change from our usual 10:00 start, so make a note -  registration starts at 3:30 pm on the 28th.

Where did it go?!?

If you are wondering where all the program icons disappeared to when we changed our website, rest assured, they are still there, just shifted a little.

Click the word Resources in the box above.  Various very useful websites are collected there by topic.  For example, if you're wanting to begin or continue to learn a foreign language using Mango Languages, click on Languages in the list and select Mango Languages. 

If you want to find out about an author or a good book suggestion, click on Books and Readers' Advisory.  My personal favorite is Stop You're Killing Me, which is a mystery lovers' gold mine.

For information resources funded by the South Dakota Library Network or the State Library, click on the link within the headline.

Please ask if you can't find something that used to be there.  We're always glad to help!
