On Your Mark, Get Set, Read!  Sign up for the Summer Reading Program starts Saturday, June 11th, and you can start logging your books then.  All our events, crafts, prizes and programs officially begin on July 5th.  Check our Calendar to see the schedule of special programs and regular weekly storytimes in July and August.  Our Deadline to enter your reading is August 20th at midnight, so make sure everything is entered in your Reading Log by then!

Grades 1 - 6

Read, read, read and record your books online!  Keep track of both your books and the time you spend reading them, every 240 minutes (4 hours) earns you prize from our Sports Chest. This year, bigger prizes are won by completeing Reading Challenges!  Check your Challange Page once you sign into the program to see what Challenges are available.  When you complete a Challenge correctly, come to the Library and pick out a prize. Prizes start July 5th. Every time you complete a Reading Challenge, fill out a Reading Raffle ticket for one of our final prizes--baseball bats full of gumballs, a sports USB drive, a Barnes & Noble Gift Certificate and our Grand Prize--your very own Color Kindle!  .

For preschoolers and kindergartners!
Read books with your favorite people--parents, grandparents, brother, sisters and babysitters--and enjoy some quality time together!  Have the adult enter the titles you read together and for every five books read, you can pick a prize from our Summer Treasure Chest when you visit the library!  (Up to three prizes per visit, depending on the number of books read.)  The biggest reward of the Young Readers program is the one-on-one time spent with your child reading!  Prizes are incidental. 
Please see the Teen Page for our Middle and High School Program.

Summer Crafts at the Library!

The Craft Room is open from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m, Monday through Thursday, 9:30 to 4 on Friday, and 10 to 1 on Saturday!

Every Monday there will be a new craft set up, using the weekly themes of the Summer Reading Program.  Craft weeks start July 1st and run through August 26th.  We ask that an adult stay with children who cannot read in the Craft Room.  Directions are on the Work Tables; just take the supplies from the Supply Table to your Work Table, follow the directions, and...ta-da!  A fun summer project!

Please remember that craft materials must last for a week...don't waste them!  We'd also appreciate it if you clean up after yourself, so that the next person to come in can also start with an organized and neat Craft Room.
