Summer Reading Challenge:

We have an exciting new Summer Reading Challenge for school-aged children to encourage them to read over the summer! Children get to set their own goals - we have several different goal sheets to choose from.  Your child can choose what will work best for them! When they sign up, they will also receive a book bag, pencil, bookmark, and may also choose a free book to keep! If your child meets the monthly goal they have set, they can bring their goal sheets to the library at 2:00 on June 30 and again on July 28, and we will all go have ice cream at Chillo Ice Cream and Eats and talk about the great books we've read!
