Beginning Today, parents of kids ages 1- through 18-years-old can sign up to participate and pick up a Summer Reading pack. The pack will include a log book, to record how many minutes children read or are read to.

This summer's theme is Librarian's Science Challenge and allows kids to earn points and prizes for reading certain science-based books, completing home experiments and attending library science events. Over 400 hundred children participated in the Summer Reading Program last year. The library hopes that even more kids will read this summer. 

The Maryville Public Library is located at the corner 5th and Main Street.
