Tigers in the P.A.R.K. and Tiger Camps

Tigers in the PARK and Tiger Camps

This summer we are once again partnering with the Borough of Fleetwood for our Summer Learning Program. We will be returning to the parks and area locations for our "Tigers in the P.A.R.K." weekly programs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays geared for ages 3-10. This summer we are also continuing our evening and weekend camps for students entering 3rd-6th grade.

2024 Summer Reading Challenge

There are so many amazing prizes that can be won each week at the Library. Be sure to stop in the library to see the prizes and see when the winners of each one will be drawn. All tickets must be in by 2pm on the day of drawing to be part of the drawing. Look carefully because some prizes are drawn weekly and some are drawn at the end of summer. Don't miss out!

Tickets are available in the library starting June 17. They will also be available at each of the Tigers in the PARK events at Locust Street Park, Fleetwood Park and our Friday Field Trips.
