It's Summer!

Summer is right around the corner and so is our Teen Summer Reading Program. Our theme this year is Make Waves @ your Library so prepare for some beach and water fun. Sign-up for the reading program begins at our Block Party on Friday, June 4th @ 6:00 p.m. Once you sign-up, you will receive the guidelines of the program, a list of the prizes, and a list of the programs. Remember, for every book you read, every 10 pages is 1 Book Buck and every program you attend is 30 Book Bucks. In case you wanted to get a head start, here is a list of the programs we have in store for you for the month of June.
