What's Happening

Summer is a perfect time to read for pleasure, and the library has a great music-inspired summer reading program called Libraries Rock! to encourage you in your reading endeavors. Registration begins on May 29 , and the program runs June 11-August 4 for eight weeks of reading fun! Stop by either location to sign up and pick up your reading logs. Read for two hours each week for a chance to win a grand prize, plus engage in classes, concert, and other shows that entertain and educate. See you this summer!

Create your own pet rock/summer reading buddy! This is one pet you won't have to housetrain. We'll share a rock-themed story and then spend time decorating a rock buddy that you can take along on adventures or read to during the summer. You'll also have time for a short creative writing project about your new pet to share with the group. For grades 2-5 (writing skills needed to participate).
