SUMMER STARTS HERE!
This year, our Summer Reading theme for all age groups is “Build a Better World.” Build a better Summer for yourself and your family by signing up for a reading program and attending activities at the library.
Adult, teens, and kids who register for a reading program can earn small incentive prizes just for reading. (You have to pick up the appropriate reading log, fill it out, and save checkout receipts.)
Don’t miss the Read-to-Me Club for pre-readers (up to age 6) every Wednesday at 10:00 am.
Summer Reading Club for independent readers (age 6-12) starts on June 26 at 9:30 am. Parents do not have to be present, but must pick up kids at 10:30 am)
READO is the Summer Reading “challenge” for teens and adults – discover new items in the library and earn a chance to win a Finale Prize.
Brand new this year are our new teen and tween activities. On Tuesday mornings from 10:00am to noon, we take the building theme to the next level with LEGO® Architect Club for kids 12 and up. These complex kits turn out amazing, tiny replicas of famous world landmarks like the White House, Big Ben in London, and the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin. (Not suitable for younger children.) Parents do not have to be present.
Looking for a cool hangout on hot summer afternoons? Tweens and Teens (10 to 16) have CrafterNoons reserved for them, on Thursdays at 3:00-4:00pm starting June 22. (Please register for this program so that we have enough materials on hand. Fill out the Children’s registration form and check the CrafterNoon box.) Parents do not have to be present.

MEET OUR BOOK BUDDIES
On the second Tuesday of each month, our Book Buddies meet to help anyone who needs read-aloud practice. Each Buddy is a certified therapy dog and has passed Canine Good Citizen training. Even better–they love to listen and they NEVER criticize. Bring your own book or borrow some of ours. Book Buddies will be ready to go at 6:00 PM.
