Summer Reading Program for Children & Teens
June 16th - August 29th | Children's Room
~One great way to keep your children reading this summer is to have them join the Summer Reading Program. Kids and teens will receive reading logs in the Children's Room between June 16th and August 29 to track their summer reading and earn prizes. Kids 11 and under will earn prizes for every four books they read, and after reading sixteen books, they earn a free paperback book! Teens, ages 12-18, will earn a free paperback book after reading eight books. It's as easy as that!
 
Craft of the Month | Children's Room
~This month, children will be working on a cute little watermelon craft.  Stop by the Children's Room anytime this month for supplies.  Take it home or craft at the library - it's up to you!
