St. Tammany Parish Summer Reading

Summer reading is back for 2021 and this year’s theme is “Tales and Tails!” Animals are the focus this year. The goal for this year is for each participant to read twenty minutes a day or seven hundred and twenty minutes total over the summer.

One of the great additions to this year’s challenge is the Beanstalk app for registering and keeping track of your reading. They do offer paper for those of you that prepare to track at home

Registration for the 2021 Tails and Tales Summer Reading Challenge officially begins on Friday, May 28th and will end on Saturday, August 7th.

This year the Summer Reading Challenge will feature a variety of in-person and online events. Adults are included as well! There are outdoor story times, virtual field trips,

For teens ages 12-18, virtual programming includes creative writing with local, multi-genre, Indie author Joy E. Rancatore, and ANIME YOUR WAY — a workshop for budding artists taught by special guest Carlos Nieto III— well-known layout artist for The
Simpsons and King of the Hill

.Adults will enjoy virtual programming like an interactive retrospective on the History of Blues in America with world-class guitar player, singer and musical artist, Joey Leone, and tips on how to attract and maintain a healthy bird population in your yard from James and Cheryl Pellerin, owners of the Wild Bird Center in Covington.

While all library programs are free and open to the public, registration is required for many events by calling the branch where the event will take place or by visiting the library’s events calendar.
