Summer Reading is now the Summer Library Program, and it starts May 30th!

Introducing Cass County Public Library’s Summer Library Program! The Summer Reading Program that you know and love is now known as the Summer Library Program. This change highlights the range of services and activities the library offers beyond books and reading. While it may have a different name, the fun is the same.

The 2023 Summer Library Program runs May 30-July 31 and will feature reading challenges for all ages, a variety of hands-on activities, and exciting performers. This year’s theme “All Together Now” focuses on kindness, friendship, and unity. You’ll find activities throughout the summer that encourage everyone to build connections, play together, and experience the library in new ways. Visit for more information.

Sign up for the reading challenge here or through the Beanstack app, available free for download for Apple or Android devices.
