Having Fun at the Havana Public Library!

You can do more than just check out books at our library!

Our Summer Reading Program is packed with tons of fun activities. You can help us make a mess, read to an older buddy, build a house, or even meet some favorite characters!

During the school year make sure to stop in and look through our great children’s book collection. Cuddle up with one of our puppets, also available for check out, and spend an evening reading!
