Discover magical mysteries with Southlake Public Library’s Summer Reading Program

Explore the nooks and crannies of the Rookery Woods Bookery, the Southlake Public Library summer reading program. Discover all the magical mysteries through the enchanted forest, travel through the En-trees, tour the Circulation Mountains and challenge yourself to visit the Outlands.

If you are worried about getting lost, we’ve got you covered. The summer reading program includes a map to the woods which takes you through a series of exciting adventures and activities that can earn you prizes as you reach new levels of learning.

The program starts June 1 and runs through July 26.

The library will host their annual Southlake Summer kick-off celebration in Bicentennial Park on Saturday, June 1 at 10 a.m. where kids can explore craft stations, participate in a scavenger hunt and sign up for the Summer Reading Program. We hope to see you there!

Your Summer Mission

Southlake Library is recruiting secret agents this summer through Southlake Spies, a summer reading program where recruits go on intelligence gathering missions to become a Master Spy.

Recruits Mission One:

  • Go to Bicentennial Park on Saturday, June 2 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • Sign up as a recruit and get your Spy Field Guide. This has missions to complete which prepare recruits for higher spy rankings and provides a log for all investigations into reading.

Being a spy requires recruits to be fit and focused. Spy ability will be put to the test with an obstacle course and a scavenger hunt. Blackland Prairie Raptor Center will be on-site to share intelligence on rescued birds.

A spy mission would not be complete without snacks to keep our recruits feeling full! There will be free hot dogs, chips and Rita’s Italian Ice.

A DJ will test the recruits’ agility with dance challenges and a hula hoop contest. Program supporters will be available with lots of fun, hands-on activities. With so much to do at the Southlake Spies’ first mission, our recruits are sure to be ready to become a Master Spy.

For any questions, please contact the Southlake Public Library at (817) 748-8243.
