We all know how important it is to continue learning through the summer while school is out! Sign up now for the 2022 Summer Learning Program with Polk County Public Libraries at Columbus Library, Saluda Library, or The learning incentive program runs for eight weeks, from June 13 until August 7. 


Kids and teens can pick up a packet at the library that contains a brag tag to start your collection, eight learning goal bookmarks, and a list of learning goal ideas. Each week, set and achieve two learning goals for a new brag tag, an entry into our weekly prize drawing, and an entry into our grand prize drawings!
