We’ll be starting off summer with an all-ages Summer Reading Kick-Off Party on Monday, June 12th from 11:00 am - 1:00 pm. We’ll have a bouncy castle and an obstacle course for even more fun!
Stop by to pick up a reading log and register for the Summer Reading Program, which runs through the end of July. Registration will continue throughout the summer and reading logs can be redeemed for prizes. Those who turn in completed reading logs will also be eligible to win a grand prize at the end of the summer. This year’s grand prize for Kids & Tweens is a new bicycle and helmet, provided by Webster Orthodontics. Other grand prizes include a 3-D printing pen (for Teens), a Kindle Fire (for Adults), and a new bicycle and helmet (for Outreach), provided by the Friends of the Library.
