Summer in the Library Makes Super SE:NCE

We’ve got it going on this summer.  Make sure to check out the calendar for events and follow our Facebook Page for the latest information and photos.

This summer, we’re doing registration just a little different.  We’d love you to participate in our Super Summer Reading Challenge.  There will be rewards and prizes and a contest to see which age group reads the most.

To sign up for the Super Summer Reading Challenge, click here.  After you have registered, make sure to pick up your reading log(s) in the library.  You can also download reading logs here.  Please note that these should be printed off as a two-sided document and folded in half.  With regard to choosing the correct reading log, you know your child best.  If your child is leaving Kindergarten and entering 1st grade, you can choose either reading log depending on what you believe is appropriate for your child.  The same goes for children leaving 2nd grade and entering 3rd grade and those leaving 6th grade and entering 7th grade.  Teens leaving 12th grade may also choose whether to participate as a student or adult.  Reading logs contain a schedule of events on the front.  Some other events will occur including Lego Club every other week on Fridays at 3:30 p.m beginning June 5 for 1st – 6th graders.
