Summer Reading is for Teens and Adults, as well!  Why should the kids have all the fun?

Teens meet at the library in the meeting room on Fridays at 1:00.  It runs June 1st – June 29th for ages 13 – 18.  Programs will include:  Sand Art, String Art, Rock Star Jewelry & more!  (There may also be prizes and snacks….)  Just register at the library, pick up a book log and you’re all set to rock & roll!  For teens, you count the amount of time you read not by book.

The Adult programs is a little more relaxed.  Simply read 4 books and you get a fun prize!  All you need to do is come to the library, register, pick up your book log and start reading.  How easy is that!?  It runs from May 21st – June 30th for ages 18 & up.

Reading Rocks…for the whole family!
