Written in the Stars: READ!

Welcome to the beginning of our National Teen Reads Week! This is an annual celebration of our teen literature, and a time where we encourage our teens to read more (as opposed to our normal agenda, which is to discourage reading and hide books. We are a library after all.). However, if you aren’t a teen, don’t let that discourage you from celebrating this week. Everyone can come to the library and do something to participate in this amazing event. Here are some of our suggestions on how to reach for the stars at the library this week:

Adults - Friday, 10/12 @ 10:15 AM - TGIF Programs - Demo Series - Food Fiesta!
