This summer reading program’s theme will be, “Libraries Rock!”  You’ll have to stop by to see all of the fun programs and events scheduled.   As in the past, you will have the opportunity to win some fantastic prizes.   The summer reading Kick-Off will be June 9th with Silly Safaris! The fun continues with several Kids Discovery programs for all ages.  Also, on July 3rd the library will once again have Bubbleopolis!

Our goal, in everything we do, based on the precept set forth by Mr. James Tyson, is to ‘Educate, Enlighten, and Enrich”.  As we continue to evolve with the needs of our community, we welcome any input you have regarding programs, materials, or anything else we can do to serve our community, and our community is YOU!
