Put together by local artist, and former Pownal Elementary School art teacher, Ms. Nat, these grab bags are stuffed full of everything you'll need to get creative!  Grab bags include construction paper, markers, crayons, watercolors, glue, tape, scissors, and more! Contact the library to request a bag.

Take & Make Storytime bags include everything you need to have a great storytime at home! Each kit has two or more picture books with supplies and instructions for making a craft that relates to the stories. These kits are made with children ages 3-6 (and their parents) in mind.

Summer Reading 2020





The weather is warm, school is out, it's time for summer reading!  

This year's summer reading program will look a little different than it has in the past.  We are hoping to begin in-person programming soon, but until we can, we'll be holding Summer Reading online.  We're making participation as easy as possible for everyone. All you need to do is read, create, and share! 

Every time you read a book during the summer, get creative by writing, drawing, or making something that has to do with the books you've read and share your creation with the library.  You can email us at PownalPub@gmail.com, contact us here, mail something to P.O. Box 400, Pownal, VT 05261, or call us at 802-823-5400 (We're here Monday, Wednesday and Friday 12 pm-5 pm). Everyone who participates in summer reading, even once, will get a free ice cream from Stewart's, and every time you read a book and share with us you'll earn a raffle ticket to enter your name in a drawing for some great prizes. The more you read, create, and share, then more chances you could win a prize.

Summer Reading starts on July 13th and runs until August 10th. Kids of all ages are welcome to participate!
