Spring Reading Challenge Deadline Approaches!

Remember to fill out and  bring in your spring reading logs (they have either dinosaurs or detectives) prior the the end of next week in order to redeem your prizes. The prizes are awesome, and include the following:

  • a coupon for 1 free children’s book from the Friends of the Library book sale
  • 1 free slice of pizza from Papa Gino’s
  • 1 free kid’s meal from D’Angelo’s
  • a cool flying disk toy

All of the above can be yours if you bring in your completed log by Saturday, May 31st!


**STORYTIME UPDATE: Miss Eileen’s Mother Goose on the Loose is canceled for this Thursday, May 22nd. We invite you to join us again on June 26th when it starts back up.**
