Summer is just around the corner, and so is the library's summer reading program. Starting June 8th, and continuing until August 1st, children ages 2 to 14 can earn prizes by reading library books. All they have to do is read one book, magazine, or audio book and return it to the Children's Department, where our teen volunteers will record each book read on a special card, and eventually earn prizes for every 10 picture books or 500 chapter book pages read.
We will also be having programming during the summer, too. Here are some programs that will happening next month in the Children's Dept at the Central Library. Please visit Library Events for information and register.
