Summer's almost here!

The library will be open late this Friday (1630-1800) with special hours just for kids to celebrate the kickoff of our Summer Reading program!

We're going to have snacks, stories, puppets and prizes. Pick up a Summer Reading Kit, get a library card, take in a puppet show, and enjoy the fun! 

And here to endorse our Summer Reading program is our friendly neighborhood Skeleton-Pirate, whom we'll be naming at the Kickoff Party! He's available in the lobby most days for photographs and advice.

Skeleton-Pirate Says: 

"Summer reading is a great opportunity for parents and children alike to read for pleasure, to explore new genres and authors, and to remember the joy of a hot summer day and a good book. It also helps kids retain valuable reading and critical thinking skills over the summer months and allows parents the opportunity to set a good example that says reading is a pleasurable and important every-day activity.

"The summer reading program is a great way to infuse learning with fun, explore new activities, allow kids to show off their imagination and creativity, and to turn reading into a social activity!

"Also, we have prizes and cake. Yarr"

So join in the fun  and help Skeleton-Pirate find a name, starting this Friday at 4:30 PM!
