Along with these special programs, we will also have our reading contest for kids and adults. It is easy. All you really have to do is... READ! We have a card that you fill out after reading 10 hours and turn in at the frotn dest. Then you get to pick a prize from a small treasure chest. Anyone who has turned in at least one reading card during the summer will get to come pick an additional prize. Maybe you could have a contest among friends or even family members!
Story time will continue on Wednesdays and Fridays at 10am during the summer months. This is a fun and engaging time for kids between the ages of one and five, where we read storeies, sing songs, and do a craft. (Do not worry - we will not ask you to leave if you do not quite fit that age bracket) There will be no story time on May 29th or 31st, or on August 7th, 9th, 14th and 16th.
