And the most exciting program of all.....Summer Reading Club! Sign up begins June 1 for One World, Many Stories (Babies, toddlers, preschoolers and K-5 children) and You Are Here (teens grades 6-12). Read what you want, just for fun, and earn prizes. Read at home, at the beach, in a tree, just read or listen to books on CD or downloadable audio books and ebooks. Everyone who completes the program will choose a paperback book. The summer reading programs are generously sponsored by Friends of the Library with a $40,000 grant.
