Summer Reading

Our TEAM READ Summer Reading Program has come to a close!  Katy Branch had excellent participation this year, but there are still many of you who haven't come in to claim your prizes!

There is still time!  All participants have until August 20, 2016 to enter all books read or activities completed and come to the library to claim your prize!  That's right!  7 more days!

We would like to thank everyone for their participation in our reading program and participating in our various programs over the summer.  How many programs did you attend?  Which one was your favorite?  Is there something you would like to see for next year?  Let us know!
