Summer in Allen County

The 2017 Summer Reading Theme is…


What better way than to share the work of letting people know what programs are coming and where they are.

At the Iola Public Library, we have our summer reading programs for adults, teens and kiddos. Make sure you take a minute to get signed up. At this point, we are 3 weeks in but there is still plenty of time to participate. The reading program ends the last week of July.
You are already reading right? So why not get a chance to win a prize for doing so.

Find out more details by visiting the circulation desk at the library.

Here is another great place to find fun things to get into this summer.

 Summer programs in Allen County.

Food, fun, cooking, reading, swimming and more!

Don’t be a “I wish I woulda done that” person. Check out what your community has to offer for the summer!

Stay cool. Hydrate and enjoy the summer.


Summer hours begin on May 30.
