2020 Summer Reading Program

Starting June 5th, you can earn free prizes just for reading! You can read (or listen to) books, magazines, or podcasts. Every 7 days that you read for any amount of time, you can earn a prize entry for a $25 Barnes & Noble gift card and an entry for the grand prize of an Amazon Kindle Fire. You can sign up online with ReadSquared, our new online summer reading app/website! We will also have bonus challenges that you can complete to earn extra prize entries. Sign up for ReadSquared here: http://neplibrary.readsquared.com/

We encourage you to try ReadSquared if it works for you, but we also have a paper option! You can pick up a paper log by asking for one during our curbside pickup times, or contacting the library at library@norwalk.iowa.gov or (515) 981-0217. Everyone can complete the program once, so please choose either ReadSquared or paper but not both, thanks!

Norwalk Easter Public Library is excited to invite Iowa local hand lettering artist Tristan Miedema, creator of TJM Design Co. to present a VIRTUAL brush lettering class—no artistic ability or experience required! Learn the basics of modern calligraphy using a brush pen from wherever you are. We’ll start with the basics, pencil and paper, and by the end of the class you’ll have created your very own project and have the supplies to practice all summer long. 

The class is free to participants, and includes 2 brush pens, a practice journal, and hand lettering cardstock (provide your own pencil and eraser)—everything is yours to keep after the class! Family friendly, and suitable for anyone wanting to learn more about the art of hand lettering. Closer to the event, we'll arrange a pickup of the provided supplies at the library - you'll get an email with more details. Email minman@norwalk.iowa.gov with any questions
