• Our Children's Librarian Kathi Gordon and her friend George

Thank you to all who participated in our Summer Reading Program. A lot of books were read by families and the special programs were well attended and enjoyed. Congratulations to the two families who won our raffle and to all who earned special prizes by completing the 3 months of reading to their families. The beach party was a lot of fun with families enjoying Mr. Bubbles and the sandboxes, sprinklers and kiddie pools.

Enjoy the rest of your summer, look forward to school starting and remember to use the library for school reports and young children’s activities.

All programs will be listed on the website calendar and facebook.
