Summer Reading - Reading for Prizes

We all know how important reading is... how it not only helps to enrich one's life but also how reading makes living life easier and more worthwhile. Posted in the library and elsewhere on this website is our Mission Statement. A portion of it says your library has a mission to encourage enjoyment of reading and promote lifelong learning.

Our Summer Reading Program has an important part in the fulfillment of that mission... and it certainly is a fun way to promote literacy. There are programs and storytimes based on the theme "Catch the Reading Bug"... and anyone who reads or has a book read to them is encouraged to fill out an entry form to win a prize. There's still plenty of time for everyone to get a chance on some great prizes. Prizes for all ages... for chilren to adults. Look for details in the library or watch for another blog post on the subject.

In the meantime keep reading!
