Thank you to everyone who participated in our summer reading programs. Kids who turned in reading logs earned $5.00 gift cards to Sonic and Dairy Queen and a gift certificate from Pizza Hut for a person pan pizzas. A big thank you to Pizza Hut for donating the gift certificates. By rewarding the kids with prizes for reading, we hope we’ve helped them avoid the summer slide in reading skills. Thank you to all the parents and caregivers who continued bringing children to the Library all summer. We hope you’ll continue to make visiting the Library a part of your weekly routine.
The Library hosts three book clubs. One for teens and three for adults. Books on the Square meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 1:00 pm. There’s a Mystery at the Library meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 5:00 pm, and the Cook Book Club meets quarterly. Stop by the circulation desk to pick up the book for the book club that interests you.
