The Pioneer Library System’s  Summer Learning Challenge 2023 has begun!

“Summer is such an important time! Our goal with SLC is to prevent summer learning loss and engage community members of all ages in connecting, reading, and learning. Research shows that students who fall behind over the summer are less likely to graduate from high school or go on to college,” said Ashley Welke, Director of Community Engagement & Learning at PLS.

Running through August 15, SLC encourages participants to log their time spent reading and learning. Once logged, each minute of learning becomes one point, and that point goes toward a community goal of 11 million points.

For more information about Pioneer Library System’s Summer Learning Challenge and related events, please visit pioneer.beanstack.org and pioneerlibrarysystem.org.


A Cole Tornado Benefit Open Rodeo will be held at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 9, and Saturday, June 10, at the Purcell Expo Center.
