Summer Reading Challenge:


Beginning June 1, children can also sign up for the Summer Reading Challenge. Once registered, they will get to choose a free book, and choose a BINGO card. By completing activities on the card to get a BINGO, their names will be entered into the drawing in August for several fun prizes.  The more BINGOs they get over the summer, the more chances they have to win! Prizes include movie passes, pizza coupons, zoo passes, and cinch sacks with camping goodies!
