Science & Summer Reading


The Pre-K through 5th grade crowd takes on science in a big way during Fizz, Boom, Read, our summer reading program that runs June 2 through July 31 at all Sioux City Public Library locations. Whether conducting simple science experiments or exploring the natural world and weather extremes, the combination of stories, movies, hands-on activities and guest presenters will dazzle curious young minds.

Spark a Reaction is the theme for teens and ‘tweens in grades 6 through 10. Sparks will fly in more ways than one as they engage in exciting activities that explore the arts and sciences, the natural world and the paranormal, and what it takes to be a hero.

Both age groups earn incentives at each Library visit, and after four visits participants may select a free paperback book, courtesy of the Friends of the Sioux City Public Library. Sign-up begins June 2. Library Summer Events Calendar (PDF)
