Program for Young Adults

Pittsburg Public Library is hosting the Unmasked Summer Reading Program for young adults in sixth through twelfth grades.

Participants may check out and read any combination of five books, magazines, or audio books. Everyone who completes one reading log will receive a free book. 

All reading logs will be entered into a drawing for one of two $100 Wal-Mart gift cards. The grand prize drawing will be held at the end of July.

That’s not all...Young adults can also join the Every Hero Has a Story Program to earn free mini-golf and swim passes. Stop by the youth services or young adult departments to get started.

Teens in sixth through twelfth grades are invited to the library on Monday mornings at 10:00 a.m. for fun programs that include art, science, magic and more! All library programs are free and no sign up is necessary. Get Unmasked this summer at Pittsburg Public Library!

It Came From The Library!

Young adults were responsible for writing the script, make-up, costumes, filming, and video editing. Because it was so good, we ended up with several versions.
