Adult Summer Reading Program Starts

This years' theme for Summer Reading is All Together Now. As a community, we celebrate and appreciate kindness and teamwork. The pandemic taught us that we are stronger together and we want to remember that.

Earn raffle tickets by reading. Fill out both sides of each ticket and drop it in the Summer Reading Box at the Circulation Desk. More blank tickets can be found next to the box. Summer Reading goes from 6/19-8/6. 5 winners will be selected 8/14.
