Summer vacation is about to begin, and so is our Summer Reading Program! This year our theme is Dig Into Reading, and we're digging up a lot of fun plans for you. Summer Reading Program officially begins on Monday, June 3, but you can sign up the next time you are at the library. Like last year, your progress will be measured in goals, and each goal completed will earn you a ticket to be entered in a drawing for the gift bag of your choice (there will be other prizes for kids as well). Goals are reached by reading a certain number of books (or for a certain number of minutes), completing puzzles, and attending programs. Stay tuned for more information!
A dream can start with a book, a literacy class, a lecture or access to a computer. Often it starts with asking a librarian a question . . ."Where would I find . . . and could you help me?"
Our staff is fortunate to have the opportunity to help people in our community pursue their dreams every day. Our dream is to make your library an even better place for you, your children and grandchildren.
We've created a new online Library WishList. Browse through colorful pages filled with books, volunteer opportunities and items we need for your library. It's fun!
Choose an item you'd like to see at the library, make a contribution towards the purchase (no amount is too small), or sponsor an item in memory of a loved one. When the "wish" is completed we'll let you know, and the next time you're in the library you can see the Wish you helped make come true.
Visit our Library WishList and help make a Wish come true.
Thank you so very much!!
