The Peru Public Library's Summer READing Program starts
Monday, June 1st and ends Friday, July 31st.

     Superheroes is our theme this year. Of course we know there are other kinds of heroes other than Spiderman, Wonder Woman, and Captain Underpants. 
     Local heroes can be Parents,Grandparents, Siblings, Teachers, EMTs, Police Officers, Nurses, Fire Fighters, our Military, Bus Drivers, and more. People that go beyond the norm to protect, care for, inspire and help others. 

     We are combining our Wee-Reader program with our normal Summer READing program. So, birth thru the 12th grade.

     You will need to have a current Peru public Library card,  and have all fines paid.
     We have all kinds of things this year that will be fun.
