CHILDREN’S READING RAFFLE Have your children been keeping track of their reading online or on paper? Remind them that Summer Reading ends on the last day of August.

ROCKETS! Children can come to the library this Saturday, the 11th, and learn about rocketry from Edge on Science. We will be creating and safely launching our own rockets during this program, so it is for ages 7 and up.
ADULT SUMMER READING Read any good books lately? Stop by the library and fill out a paper hot air balloon to recommend them to your friends and neighbors.

If you’re looking for a good read, explore the titles posted on the bulletin board and take a chance on discovering something new.
