Summer Reading Program

Children of all ages are invited to join our 8 week Summer Reading Club.
Sign up any time between 6/23 and 8/12 at the Children's Room Desk.
You'll receive a Summer Reading Log to help you track the amount of time you spend reading or listening to books.  Weekly, bring your log to the library to tally up your reading times to receive a small, silly prize.
