Paws to Read

Did you know the Library's Paws to Read Summer Reading Programs run through Sat., Jul. 26? Sign up today to join the fun of reading and earning prizes along the way! Our summer reading programs are for all ages -- from birth to kids, and teens to adults! Stop by the Summer Reading table in the Youth Services department for more information and to sign up your children through grade 8. And stop by the desk in Adult Services to sign up yourself or your children in grades 7-12. Our children's summer reading program participants will get to spin our new prize wheel for each three hours that they spend reading, and kids who finish the program will earn a free book to keep and an invitation to the Summer Reading Finale Party. It doesn't get more fun than that!
