Summer Learning at TCPL!

SRP 2020 banner featuring an illustration of Puss in Boots carrying books and the slogan "Imagine Your Story"

Our world may be very different these days, but some things will stay the same  -- and the fun and value of learning throughout this summer is one of them!

Join TCPL as we launch our virtual Summer Learning programs June 27 through August 8.  We have programs for all ages, so the whole family can participate!

Pre-reader and Kindergarten through 5th grade programs:


1.    Get a Pre-reader game sheet and early literacy tips or a Kindergarten through 5th grade sheet!  

2.    Write your names and contact information on the front of the sheet.

3.    Complete as many of the challenges as you can.

4.    Return this sheet to the Tompkins County Public Library by August 8. You can also email a picture of your sheet to Kate at kdevoe@tcpl.org. Participants who turn their sheets in will receive a FREE BOOK & a chance to win a prize in our raffle!


**Many ICSD elementary students will have their gift book and game sheet delivered directly to them, thanks to a wonderful partnership with ICSD!  Keep an eye out for that in June. If you don’t receive a book ….check back here or call TCPL at (607)272-4557 Ext 275 for more information coming soon.**


The pre-reader and K-5 summer programs are made possible by a grant from the Bernard Carl and Shirley Rosen Library Fund of Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
