Week Five of the Summer Reading Program: Keep Reading!

In week five, we take a little break to celebrate Independence Day, but you don’t need to stop reading! We encourage you to keep reading, collect all ten of your brag tags and see just how many books/pages you can log in before the end of the summer and you head back to school. In fact, if you were on vacation or had other activities going on, it’s not too late to get in on the fun and register for the Summer Reading Program and start reading!

The 2021 “Tails & Tales” Summer Reading Program is going gangbusters at your neighborhood Bienville Parish Library with even more fun coming up in the last two weeks of performances. “Geebo the Clown” makes an appearance on July 8th and July 9th and the finale is “The Dinosaur Experience” on July 15th and July 16th — that is sure to be a “Paleo-riffic” program!


This is a new Summer Reading Program reward and there are ten brag tags to snag! Preventing the “summer slide” continues to be the main objective of summer reading programs. This new reading incentive gives your reader extra motivation to read and collect all ten tags. It will impress teachers with how many books/pages read during the summer vacation!

But it doesn’t end with the brag tags – Children are encouraged to keep reading as much as they can because there will be certificates and prizes for the top reader in multiple categories, including: top reader at each branch, top reader in their age group, and top reader in the Bienville Parish Library system.


Everyone is welcome to attend the performances! If you’re visiting the library on the days of an SRP performance, come in and join us! Below are the program times for each library:


  • Arcadia at 10:00 a.m.
  • Ringgold at 2:00 p.m.


  • Castor at 10:00 a.m.
  • Saline at 2:00 p.m.

You and your children are welcome to take part in the Summer Reading Program performances – it’s a fun way to spend an hour and visit the library too! There’s always something going on at your Bienville Parish Library – visit bienvillelibrary.org to see the schedule of events.
