Summer Reading Program 2014: Paws to Read!
We had another successful year of Summer Reading in June, but wait! We’re not done yet! Although our structured Thursday and Friday craft and story times are done for the summer, we are still offering reading log challenges as well as trivia challenges during July. We have several different levels of difficulties for all ages from preschool to teenagers. Stop in any time the library is open to pick up some challenge sheets. Be sure to return them to the library when you are finished to win some prizes!
Book-A-Lunch is back!
Join Barb at 11 AM on Fridays in July and August at Veteran’s Memorial Park for Book-A-Lunch! Barb will read one children’s story in the park. Please feel free to bring a picnic lunch or snacks, blankets, camping chairs, etc. Please note that there will not be Book-A-Lunch on July 4 for Independence Day or August 15 during our annual book sale. In case of rain, Book-A-Lunch will be held in the library.

Story Time will resume in September 2014.
Story time is held in the library every Friday at 10:30 am from September through May unless otherwise noted. Story time lasts about one hour. All children ages birth and up are welcome to attend with an adult. Each Friday a different theme will be featured.
