Craft Day at the Library

Things are getting busy at the library with people signing up and checking out books for the Summer Reading Program.  The first day to start counting books is Monday, June 6.

We still need to decorate the library.  Come in any time from 10:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 2, to make a craft item to help us get motivated to READ this summer.  It will be lots of fun.

Look at the Library Blog each week to find out what’s going on at the library.  You can also click on the Summer Reading link above to find out what’s going on all summer long.
