SUMMER READING PROGRAM 2019

The Corinth Library is ready to share “A Universe of Stories” this summer as part of its annual Summer Reading Program.  The program has two components: a reading challenge and a series of events.  The reading challenge is ongoing throughout the entire summer, during which children of all ages may participate.  They must pick up their Summer Reading Logs from the library; these will allow them to keep track of how many books they will read over the summer break.  Prizes will be given to those who challenge themselves to read this summer.

All ages are welcome to participate in both the reading challenge and the schedule events.  For those who are not ready to read, we also have activities that can be completed that encourage imagination and listening skills.

The Corinth Library is located at 1023 North Fillmore Street in downtown Corinth.  Come see us today to get started on YOUR reading challenge!


Wednesday, July 10 at 2 PM – Corinth Librarians Mr. Cody and Mrs. Teresa will have some craft-filled fun with Space-Themed activities and stories.  These activities will celebrate this year’s theme of “A Universe of Stories” as we acknowledge the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo moon landing.


Wednesday, July 17 at 2 PM – We will host a Water Safety Program presented by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.  Kids will get to see and interact with various apparatuses while they learn how to stay safe in or near the water this summer.


Wednesday, July 24 at 2:00 PM – The Corinth Library will host the “Poetry Man” and local storyteller Autry Davis as he entertains children with interactive and engaging stories and poems.  Mr. Davis has been a long-time storyteller in the Corinth area, as well as a founding member of the Crossroads Poetry Project.


Wednesday, July 31 at 2:00 PM – Debora Waz will visit from the Mississippi Museum of Natural History.  Mrs. Waz was a big hit last year, and she will return with her many reptilian friends.  She will discuss various animals of the local area, and kids will get a chance to pet some of the critters that visit us!
