Registration begins today for the library’s Summer Reading Program. All programs for children and adults will run from July 7 to Aug. 16 with the exception of the Adult Camp NaNoWriMo program.
An informational meeting about this online writing program will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, June 26, at the library so participants can be ready to write on July 1. You’ll learn about the online Camp NaNoWriMo program and how the weekly meetings will assist your writing process with prompts and tips. It may be just what you need to motivate you to write.

Just in time for the Summer Reading Program, we’ve completed the Children’s Area makeover. New carpet, curtains and pillows have created a cozy space for families to relax and read or to enjoy story times.
