Dream Big @ the Pella Public Library will begin on Monday, June 4. Just pick up a reading log and start reading! Logs will be given out on Monday, June 4 starting at 10:00 a.m. Registration for programs will start on Monday, June 4 at 5:00 p.m. in the Story Time Room.
New this year, we will offer an early literacy program for parents with children 2 years old and younger. It’s never too early to start reading to your children!
In addition to the reading program, the library will offer morning and afternoon movies and story times. We also have some special programs planned:
