Read On! End of Summer Reading

Our Summer Reading Program is coming to a close this week. I did better on my Adult Summer Reading Bingo sheet this year than I did last year. I just missed a complete blackout, but I’m proud of the Bingos I earned. I will sheepishly admit that I didn’t attend enough Adult Summer Reading events to cross off both of those squares.

Overall, I had a great time working my way through the Bingo sheet and my kids enjoyed putting stickers on their sheets for every 30 minutes they read or listened to a book. One of the nice outcomes from the whole family participating in our Summer Reading Program was that my kids and I encouraged each other to accomplish the goals the program gave us.

You still have time to get your entries into our grand prize drawings and kids and teens still have time to claim their free books. Everything is due by 5:00 PM on Thursday, August 1st, right before our much anticipated Library Festival.

If you can make it to the library on Thursday, you won’t regret it. Our Library Festival will be an excellent event for the whole family from 6 – 8 PM. We’ll have food trucks, games, activities, prizes, and more! We’re even partnering with other City departments so everyone can explore our various emergency vehicles and the big trucks and equipment that keep our city running.

We’re also officially launching our new logo at the Library Festival, so be sure to look for the temporary tattoos and stickers featuring the new design. We’re beyond excited to finally start using this logo!
