Charles W. Gibson Public Library launches summer reading program

BUCKHANNON — The Charles W. Gibson Public Library is excited to announce the launch of its annual Summer Reading Program, themed “Adventure Begins at Your Library.” This year, the program promises to be a thrilling journey filled with books and activities designed to inspire a love of reading and exploration among participants of all ages.

The Summer Reading Program began on June 1, 2024, and runs through July 31, 2024. Registration is free and open to all community members. If you haven’t signed up yet, don’t fret; registration will remain open until June 10. Community members are encouraged to stop by the library to register.

Participants can look forward to a variety of exciting challenges and activities. By completing reading prompts and weekly adventure-themed activities, readers can earn entries for grand prizes. Special reading logs are available at the library to track progress, while teens and adults can also track their progress online at

“The program will feature interactive Choose-the-Adventure stories in the kids’ and tweens’ areas, allowing participants to vote on various story options throughout the summer,” Gibson Library Director Catherine Norko said. “At the end of the program, participants will be eligible for grand prizes, including gift cards, books, and other surprises.”

“Prizes will be drawn during the Wrap Party on August 1 at Woody’s Bowling Center,” she added.

Norko encouraged everyone to join the program.

“I think people should sign up because it’s something to keep you active and engaged over that learning break — for kids, in particular,” she said. “They’re no longer in school, so they may need that little bit of encouragement to keep reading, keep doing and learning new things.”

Join the Charles W. Gibson Public Library this summer for an unforgettable adventure filled with books, creativity, and new discoveries.
