Library News & Events 


Great job to all the kids out there that are reading and keeping track of the minutes that they read!! Just a reminder that even when the library programming stops in a couple of weeks that doesn’t mean the program is over. You can keep reading and tracking your minutes until July 21. The last time to turn in your minutes is Friday, July 21 at 4:00pm. Winners will be notified the following week.

A big THANK YOU to the many volunteers who made our Summer Reading Program a BIG success! For those that brought cookies and bars-thank you!! We are super proud of the kids for the amount of reading they have done. Great job & keep reading kids!!
