Summer Reading Program: On Your Mark, Get Set…READ!

Our Summer Reading Program is back to celebrate all things sports! Be a sports star by picking up your reading log, super sports stickers and a special book bag at the Children’s Desk beginning May 31st. We will kick off summer with our Library Warriors program including a bouncy castle, giant-sized board games and concessions all in our own parking lot. Don’t miss this on June 3rd from 6-8pm!  All our Summer Story Times continue along with some great activities for the bigger kids including  Bedtime Math, Read to the Dogs, the Thursday Mystery Movie and LEGOs After Lunch.
