Library News for June 20, 2018

Summer Reading registration is open. Kids who turn in their reading logs at the end of summer will have an opportunity to choose a prize from our store. There will be bikes, guitars, keyboards, Lego kits, and more fun things from which kids can choose. Those who register and log the most reading hours will be the first to shop. We offer prizes to encourage kids to keep up their reading skills, but the real reward is developing a lifelong love of reading.
