Our Summer Reading Program is coming to a close soon. Reading logs from our Dream Big — Read! and Teen Read Own the Night reading programs are due by Saturday at the Children’s Desk. Turn in your log and receive a free paperback book you can choose from a selection.
Bailey the therapy dog is back to listen to young readers 11:30 a.m. to 12: 30 p.m. Saturday. The program is designed to improve children’s reading and communication skills, so it’s especially great for reluctant and beginning readers. Be sure to sign your child up for a 10-minute time-slot the day of the program.
Karen Monson-Thompson’s artwork will be displayed in our lobby through August. Karen is a hand weaver of fine textiles for the home.
