The Blue Earth County summer reading program is free to all participants and is able to maintain one of the strongest programs in the state thanks to the generosity of all its sponsors. Taylor Corporation (primary sponsor) and Friends of the Deep Valley Libraries remain the library’s largest sponsors of the program. All contributions great and small are all appreciated and ensure that quality programs continue for the youth in our area.
