The Nephi Public Library currently has 7 computers for public internet use. Our computers also feature word-processing programs. Sign up in the library and start browsing! Please note there is an age minimum requirement, ask our librarians about under age 18 use.
We have in our collection some older books available to the public (Family histories, Local histories, High School yearbooks, etc.). These books do not check out from the library, but copies can be made from most of them for personal use.
Summer Reading Program
The Summer Reading Program is designed to keep children and young adults reading during the summer break, there are so many advantages to the summer reading program. According to the Collaborative Summer Reading Program, the benefits are:
- Children are motivated to read.
- Children develop positive attitudes about reading, books, and the library.
- Children maintain their reading skills during summer vacation.
- Children have access to experiences that further their sense of discovery.
- Children have access to experiences through which they can learn to work cooperatively.
These skills can help not only your child but also every person of every age, we encourage youth and adult alike to take advantage of this program. Plus, one of the benefits is the variety of prizes they can earn throughout the summer.
For the 2019 Summer Reading Program, the theme is "A Universe of Stories". If you would like to find more information about the national Summer Reading Program we encourage you to check out the Collaborative Summer Reading Program by clicking here. Nephi Public Library will begin our summer reading program in June. Don't miss our activity days every Wednesday in June from 10 to 11 a.m., these activities are for youth and we encourage younger youth to come with a guardian. We can't wait to serve you and help you find "a universe of stories" in our library!!!
