     Almost Done

    Washington has had the most readers in the Peoria Public Library Summer Reading Contest for 24 years and we want to thank YOU for helping to keep our streak alive! Even if you are going to be away for the summer, your sign-up counts as long as you read books somewhere.

    During the 2019-2020 school year, Washington will have the Bookmobile visiting during lunch recess on Thursdays. Make sure to bring your Library Card! 

    We are always on the lookout for great books! If you are interested in helping take a look at our Wish List tab.
