Summer Reading Celebration!

This is, sadly, the last week of our Summer Reading Program.  Before you go back to school though, join us for our Summer Reading Celebration this week!

14 summer celebration2

If you participated in the Reading Program, you can drop in on Wednesday (that’s tomorrow!) anytime between 5:00 and 8:00 for ice cream…and you pick the toppings!  Pick out a book for your final summer prize, discover how many books you read as a group, see your name on our Summer Reading Scroll and find out who won the Guessing Jars!

The party has a slightly later start time this year, so take note.

If you can’t be here tomorrow, don’t worry.  You can still pick up prizes, including your final book prize, until mid-September in the Storytime Room.  Just stop at the Youth Services Desk and speak to a librarian.

See you tomorrow!
