Summer Reading Club


**Ask about Read-to-Me for pre-schoolers**

The library Summer Reading Club is a lot like an all-you-can-eat salad bar, available to your children anytime the library is open. Come in at your convenience and choose what looks tasty to take home and enjoy. Return when they are ready for more. You are welcome to come every day if you like! (To keep a level playing field, all we ask is that you take only 3 books at a time and come no more than once a day)

We will help them document their progress and award fun little prizes along the way.

For additional fun, we have the following scheduled activities:
