Porter County Public Library System patrons can take a walk on the wild side this summer with the library’s summer reading program, “Tails & Tales.” The free program, offered at library branches in Valparaiso, Portage, South Haven, Hebron, and Kouts, runs to July 31 for all ages. 

Participants can attend socially-distanced programs, enter weekly prize drawings for park passes and gift certificates to local businesses, and use the Beanstack app to log the books they read this summer for a chance to win a grand prize, like an Oculus VR headset or a GoTrax scooter.

Summer reading at the library is a long-standing tradition, and this summer staff are eager to return to more conventional library programs and activities, including the first in-person storytime programs in over a year.

According to PCPLS Director Jesse Butz, “Patrons and staff look forward to Summer Reading every year for a reason. It’s the highlight of our year, and staff work hard to develop activities that are fun, engaging, and instill the values of reading and literacy.”

The “Tails & Tales” program is available to all Porter County residents. For more information on how to participate and to see events happening at the local branch, visit www.pcpls.org.
