Library Focus: Plenty of programs to keep students busy

Welcome to the calm before the storm. Our youngest patrons are still in school and the teen contingent is probably still catching up on their sleep. Stop in and enjoy the cool and the quiet before the summer reading games begin next week.

Speaking of summer reading games, everybody is invited to play again this summer. Our kids division begins with read to me for kids 3 and up. We also have groups for older readers from elementary and middle schoolers, to teens to adults. Sign up for players from 3 years old to fifth grade begins Monday June 27. Older readers will be able to sign up soon to our online edition either from home or here in the library.

I'm still setting things up and searching for prizes, so watch this space for more details.
