Public Library of Johnston County and Smithfield Announces Virtual Summer Reading Program

The Public Library of Johnston County and Smithfield’s Virtual Summer Reading Program will begin on June 22nd and continue through August 3rd. This year’s theme is “Imagine your Story!” This theme informs us that we have a story to tell. Due to the current pandemic, the library will not hold any in-house programs this summer.

The benefits of the summer reading programs are students receive higher reading scores on standardized tests. These programs bridge the summer gap and empower the students to be lifelong learners. Students will have experiences that will further their sense of discovery.

Students may download reading logs to participate in the Virtual Summer Reading Program on the library’s website at or in the library. The library is encouraging everyone to read and let their imaginations go wild. Once students have finished reading their books, they must return their reading logs to the Children’s or Teen Librarian to obtain a prize. The Public Library thanks Gotham's Deli, Chic-Fil-a, McDonald's and Zaxby's for their support of the Summer Reading Program.

According to Arthur, “Having fun isn’t hard when you have a library card!" If you have any questions, please call 919-934-8146.
