Summer Reading is Coming to an End!

There are only a couple of weeks remaining in our adult summer reading program so be sure to get your books recorded by Saturday, August 3rd so you can pick up a great final prize! And even though you've reached your goal you should keep recording book titles since every book that you read until the end will get you entries into our weekly drawings as well as double movie coupons. The kids' summer reading program also ends soon, with a pizza party on August 3rd at noon that you won't want to miss!
