Come and join us as we embark upon our summer adventure at the library.

The fun will begin the week of June 18th when we will “Chalk the Walk” and you can sign up to be a part of the program, which begins in July on Thursdays and Fridays.

Thursdays at 10:00 am is Toddler-Time and Fridays at 11:00 am is for our elementary age patrons.

However, everyone is welcome either time. We don’t want anyone to miss out on the fun!

We will begin on Thursday, July 11th and continue on the 18th and 25th.

The Friday dates are July 12th, 19th and the 26th.

We have so many exciting activities planned!  We will read stories, play games, work puzzles, have crafts and lots of fun!

We have not forgotten about our middle school patrons, either.  We will have sessions for you too!  Interested students who will be entering the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade in the fall should come by the library and sign up for our middle school reading club.  Our first meeting will be on Tuesday, July 16th at 11:30 until 12:30.

Come by or call the library for more information.

Don’t miss out!  Be part of the Adventure.

Kids enjoy Two summer Reading Program sessions each week in July 2023

Kids Sitting on Books The summer reading program last summer was divided into two sessions.  The Thursday morning session began at 10 am and focused on our younger patrons as we always do on Thursdays with our Toddler Time. Our crafts, games and stories were geared toward the toddlers. The 11:00 am Friday sessions were for a little older group, similar to what we do during our normal Friday Storytime.   Some of the activities are pictured below.

What a great time we had at the summer reading program on Friday, July 14. We decorated the three little pigs house and built security fences . Thank goodness we saved all three of the little pigs. Join us for more fun at 11 am for each Friday in July.




















On Thursday, July 13 we helped a ladybug who was so grumpy! It turned out he was just a hungry ladybug. There are two more weeks of summer reading. It’s not o late to join us for all the fun on Thursdays at 10 am.
