BEWARE THE “ SUMMER SLIDE”...it just might be looking for YOU! Studies show a documented decrease in children’s reading proficiency in June, July and August! Don’t let the “slide” get you or your loved ones. Feed your brain continuously at the library for a summer of great fun!
You are your child’s first teacher. The library is your child’s schoolreadiness place. We have lots of ideas to help you build your child’s learning skills and confidence. Visit the library and ask the librarians for help in getting your child ready for the wonderful world of reading and learning.
The library will be sponsoring a bookmark contest! Everyone age 3-11 is invited to enter. We will have bookmark forms for you to pick up at the library or create your own form, approximately 2 ½ “ by 7”. Design a bookmark with the theme of reading and the joy of books. Winners will be chosen for the following age groups: 3-5, 6-7 and 8-11. Entries are due by 5 pm, Tuesday, May 31. Have fun!

We will have more weekday openings during the summer.
