The Shelbyville-Bedford County Public Library was proud to present our Summer Reading Program this year!

SBCP Library registered almost 350 Summer Reading participants and had 2301 children, teens, and adults in attendance to in-person events over the weeks of Summer Reading. The 73 programs included performers, authors, crafts, STEAM activities, and Bookmobile. The Library would like to thank all of the children, teens, parents, grandparents, and anyone else who attended these programs! This year’s Summer Reading Program would not have been a success without your participation.

The Library again partnered with The Fly and held larger programs in their building, and we were able to host children from the Boys and Girls Club, the SACP, and the Summer Program at East Side Elementary. There was a small bump in the road as the library had to close the last week of the program, and the Library appreciates everyone’s understanding as we had to cancel some events of that week, reschedule the finale to be a finale/back to school event, and extend deadlines for summer reading game boards.
