Summer Reading Program

Held annually at the Library. Generally a six week program, begins after the last school for summer and ends approximately a week before the school year begins.

Each year the program is constructed around a different theme. Past themes have been focused around Isleta culture, cultures around the world, and theater. Students are required to read for 20 minutes daily and fill out a reading log. The Toddler Program has a story will be read to them.

There are two sessions for two age groups:
Toddler Program children from ages 3 to 6 and attend from 9:00am-12:00pm.
Youth Program ages 7 to 18 and attend from 1:00pm to 4:30pm.

Each week the students learn, create, and engage in an activity based upon the topic of the week. Various field trips are scheduled sporadically throughout the program. Other acctivities include a Book Report Challenge with opportunities to win prizes. Our prizes are selected by the students which have iincluded items such as a 32″ HD TV, Nook Tablet, iPod Touch, Nintendo DSi, and a digital camera, etc.

Summer Lunch Program

This past year the library has collaborated with the Bernalillo County to provide free sack lunches for students ages 1 to 18. This is for students throughout the community. For those students who are in the program, Toddlers receive their lunch after the program is over and the Youth receive their lunch before their program time begins. Our annual Summer Program is highly anticipated each year. We have limited space; therefore we only accept the first 20 toddlers and the first 30 youth participants. These spaces are filled quickly, so please be aware of registration dates. For more information about our Rules and Policies please contact us.
