Our Summer Reading Program was the best ever!

325smallIn June and July, a record 584 kids reported reading for 5,221 hours! They got prizes and coupons every week and a chance to enter our raffle  – and think of all the great books, magazines, audio books, and ebooks that they read. We are so proud of every one!

Our Fall Program Flyer will be available soon. It’s full of all our old favorite yearly activities, and we have some new events planned, too! Registration for Fall Programs begins on September 2nd. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
