2024 Summer Reading at PLJCS

The Public Library of Johnston County and Smithfield is excited to launch its 2024 Summer Reading Program. As in the past, we will be offering families in our community the Collaborative Summer Library Program (CSLP). CSLP is a consortium of state libraries and public library systems working together to provide high-quality summer reading program materials for children, teens, adults, and families.

This year's programs will include:

  • A reading/activity log that readers use at home to track their progress toward an age-appropriate reading goal, earning incentives and prizes for participation.

  • Activities and events happening at the library or available as take-home kits in support of the theme. These include storytimes, active play/music/movement activities, crafts, snacks, book clubs, special presenters, game nights, and more.

  • Library activities are no cost. 

We hope you will join us for summer events at the library. For calendars and more information about programs and events by age group, use the drop down under "Summer Reading" on our website, or use the links below:
