Summer Reading 2020 is Coming!

Hello Everyone! We are still having Summer Reading despite COVID19! It may look a little different then in years past but we are still moving ahead and READING! We have two Summer Reading programs: one online (sign up online) and one that you actually come to the library and pick up a weekly packet (you will register at the library for this one…you can call in beginning June 8) so we have everything ready for you. We are doing this due to the uncertainty of the library being physically open or not due to COVID19. You can participate in either or in both but you can only count your time once for the tickets for the gift drawings. Yes, Summer Reading is for all ages Pre-K thru adult. It will officially begin with sign ups and packets available June 15 and run through July 29 with the drawing for the gifts that day at Noon. More information will be available soon.
