Current Status: The Library is Open.

Now open for browsing, computer use, and curbside pickup with limited capacity.

We will also be following the CDC’s recommended guidelines to keep our employees and patrons safe. We are experiencing a backlog, and we are doing our best to accommodate each one of our patrons. 

Masks or facial coverings are required. We ask that you wash/sanitize your hands before coming to the library, maintain social distancing of 6ft indoors, and — most importantly — stay at home if you are feeling sick.

Summer Quest (previously known as Summer Reading) provides readers of all ages the opportunity to experience everything the library has to offer through leisure reading, virtual programs, and participation in a variety of activities. Readers registered in the program log the activities they complete. Incentives are offered for the completion of activities. Our theme this year is TAILS & TALES™. We also hope you’ll join us as we envision new virtual library programs, bringing new programs and familiar favorites like storytime, yoga, and book clubs to you from a distance. We would like to thank our sponsors -- Friends of the Parkland Community Library -- for their continued support of the library and literacy initiatives.

1000-Minute Challenge

Read 1000 minutes or more between June 13-August 7. Children who are too young to read independently may have books read to them. 

While spending time reading is the main way for participants to 'level up' and complete their READsquared Quest, mission activities and virtual badges will also count towards your goal.
