LIBRARY NEWS: We have two more Summer Reading Programs available for children to attend: Thursday June 30 and Wednesday July 6- the special bonus program with the Blank Park Zoo guests. In order for the children to be eligible to attend the Pool Party and Prize Drawing on July 7, they need to attend at least one program at the library and meet their summer reading goal. Goal sheets need to be turned in by Wednesday, July 6. Please call the Library or check out our website for more details. 

Don't forget we have volunteers ready and waiting to help during our new program starting July 1. The Rocket Readers Program is for those who would like to maintain or improve their reading skills by reading aloud during a 15 minute session with a Friends of the Library volunteer.
