Summer Literacy Program

More than 100 kids spend two weeks of their summer at the library working one-on-one with tutors to strengthen their reading skills. Open to kids finishing Grades JK-3 by recommendation of their teachers in the spring. Contact your teacher or the library for more information.

Outreach

Library staff will host class visits or visit schools to offer a variety of programs such as storytimes, makerspaces, and library card drives!

Perth Library Early Years (PLEY) Bags of children’s books are distributed to area playgroups in partnership with CROW. Bags of books are delivered to Home Childcare Providers on a monthly basis by Rotary Club volunteers.
