New Ulm Public Library’s 2022 summer reading program, “An Ocean of Possibilities” begins on Monday, June 6 and runs through Monday, August 1

Here's what you need to know to dive in and get reading!

  • The summer reading program is open to all ages between birth and those entering their high school senior year.
  • The community check-out goal this summer is 25,000 items checked-out of the library in just 8 weeks.
  • Stop by the library starting on May 31 to pick up your reading log and bookmark so you are all set to start recording your reading on June 6.
  • If you're going on vacation, be sure to talk to Ms. Kathryn before you go so you will still be able to participate!
  • Visit the library each week to check out books to help with our community check-out goal and help you fill up your reading log.
  • Complete your weekly reading goal on your reading log and at the end of eight weeks you’ll be invited to choose a free book, fill out an entry for a grand prize, choose a temporary tattoo, and vote for a summer reading library prize.
  • We'll purchase the summer reading library prize and add it to our collection if we meet our community check-out goal.
  • Summer activities include classes for kindergarten through high school age participants, fun entertaining programs, story times and more. Be sure to check out our events calendar to see what's coming up and to register for programs!
