The Barclay Public Library in Warrensburg has launched its 2021 summer reading club and organizers are planning for a close to normal program this year.
Children's librarian Cindy Lewis on the WHOW Morning Show Wednesday told Regional Radio News they have a children's, teen, and adult summer reading club. They have made a change this year and are going by minutes read for their children's program.
Area libraries are approaching summer programming differently. The Barclay Public Library is welcoming in programmers but Lewis points out everything will take place outside at the community park across the street from their facility.
The teen and adult summer reading club will be based on books read throughout the summer. Lewis explains for every five books read, those individuals can enter into drawings at the end of the summer for gift cards to various Macon County businesses.
Programs will be every Thursday at the park across the street from the library. Lewis also recommends their reading programs for young kids every Tuesday at the park.

The Barclay Public Library is also allowing vaccinated individuals to enter the library without a mask and has recently reintroduced some of its regular services.
