Summer Reading Raffle & Events at The Library

Readers of all ages will be able to access free educational and cultural enrichment activities throughout the summer as Decorah Public Library presents its 2019 Summer Reading Program, “A Universe of Stories.” A variety of fun events have been planned for families to participate in during the eight week program, which runs from June 1, 2019 to July 24, 2019.


To encourage teens and adults to read throughout the summer, weekly raffles for local gift certificates will be held thanks to the generosity of Friends of Decorah Public Library. Registration for the Summer Reading Program is required.

Children will receive free ice cream from the Sugar Bowl and miscellaneous other small prizes for reaching a 500 minute reading challenge. Registration for the Summer Reading Program is required.
