Helpful Tips and Reminders for Child Care Providers | Summer Reading Home

Group Accounts

Poudre River Public Library District's Summer Reading Challenge is a terrific way to keep the kids in your care reading throughout their summer vacation! We've put together a special version of Summer Reading that's easy to do with a small group of kids like a child care group, scout troop, or other non-family groups of kids. Sign up for a group account online at or on a library computer starting May 28, then stop in a library and receive a free gift for each child in your group (while supplies last). Complete ten hours of shared reading time, and each child in your group will receive a free paperback book and a coupon for a free plant at Gulley Greenhouse. Children who wish to participate in the library's summer STREAM (Science, Technology, Reading, Engineering, Arts, Math) learning activities for special prize drawings must sign up with their families or individually.

Groups of all sizes are welcome at our outdoor programs. A group with more than six must make advance arrangements to attend indoor programs by calling 970-221-6740. All programs are free and no registration is required for outdoor shows.

Summertime is also a great time to visit the library. To give your group the best possible library experience (not too crowded and staff to help your kids), here are the ideal times to visit a library near you.
