Summer Reading Club 2019!
Get ready kids! The Library’s Summer Reading Club “Imagine the Possibilities!” will start Friday June 28, 2019.
Come by the Library to sign-up and get your own free booklet to keep track of all the books you read in July & August. Collect fun stickers & bookmarks, and proudly receive your very own Reading Medal.
Regular reading throughout the summer helps kids maintain or improve reading skills while school is out. Kids are encouraged to read lots of books, and to listen to someone read to them. We look forward to seeing you and your family at the Library this summer.
