Powell Library

Troy, Mo. - Making this summer extra special for your children is as easy as a visit to Powell Memorial Library.

Reading is recognized as one of the most important contributing factors to a child’s success.  Good readers become good students. Children who are read to regularly become better readers and develop a love of learning that lasts a life time.

Our summer reading program will be offered at Powell Memorial Library. The program runs from June 14 - July 30. Prizes are awarded. 

Twenty hours or 20 books is the maximum for completing this program. Upon completion your child will receive a free book of their choice.  You can register for the program anytime beginning June 14.

We will also be offering a MOMMY & ME story time for Preschoolers. It is a program designed to promote the early reading concept to preschoolers. This program will be at Bonfils Auditorium (stage area) on Wednesdays starting June 23 - July 28 at 10 a.m. to 10:45 a.m.

Girls Scouts of Eastern Missouri will be hosting a Summer Reading Program at Bonfils Auditorium for all elementary school age boys and girls. The program will be held each Thursday in July, beginning July 8 from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m.
