SUMMER OF READING IS COMING TO AN END

This is the last week of our Summer Reading Program.  Now is the time to turn in your book reviews (adults and teens) to be eligible for prizes.  Children can report their books up until noon of August 15 and still earn an invitation to our fabulous Summer Reading Club Picnic!  And of course everyone is invited to a concert on the library lawn on Monday.  See listings below for details.
