Library Focus: Be a tourist in your own backyard

— Summer is for Stories no matter what your age or stage. Our youngest users are invited to get back in the storytime habit despite hectic summer schedules with our summer series of drop in storytimes. No registration is needed but we do ask parents and caregivers to observe the suggested ages for the best storytime experience.

We’re also inviting all our readers to play our summer reading games. Signup for Pre k – 5th grade starts on Monday, June 25, in the Children’s Area. This crew keeps a log of summer reading and reports on books to our summer reading volunteers to earn weekly prizes. They will also be eligible to attend a series of special Monday events. Teens in grades six and up are invited to play the summer reading game online to earn tickets for a variety of raffle prizes that will be awarded at the end of the summer.

Last but hardly least, adults are also invited to join us online to share opinions on their summer favorites for a chance at a variety of small prizes.
