It’s now halfway through our summer reading game! We still have tons of events each and every week for kids and families – make sure to check out the list of events on our website or check back a few blog entries to see the entire list of events. We still have a lot of prizes for those of you playing the summer reading game with us. If you signed up for the game but haven’t been back since then to spin and try for your przies, come on in! To get your first prizes (for the children’s game) you just need to make a row on your board. To get your second prize, you’ll have to complete the board for “blackout”.

Send us your choices and we’ll see if we can bring those along to storytime on Thursday August 14th at 7 p.m. We’ll take suggestions now through August 1st.
