Complete Reading Logs

If you have been participating in the Summer Reading Program, we encourage you to come in today and finish filling out your reading logs if it isn’t already completed.  The final program is tomorrow at 4 pm at the First Baptist Church.  We will have a grand prize drawing per age group for those who have completed the reading goal.  To help the library staff make sure your name is in the drawing for completing the library goal, we encourage you to have your reading log (book titles for teens and adults, and sticker chart for kids) completed by Thursday, July 10th. Thank you for your participation in the Summer Reading Program.

Summer Reading Announcement

Are you ready for summer? The Library is. Two Mondays from now is the kickoff the Summer Reading Program! Join us on Monday, June 2nd, at the First Baptist Church @ 4 pm to see Magician Adam White and to register for the Summer Reading Program. All ages are welcome to participate in the summer reading program which lasts from June 2nd through July 11th. 0-5th grade will read minutes for receiving prizes. Teens will read six books over the six weeks, and adults will receive a prize for reading three books over the six weeks. If teens attend the teen night on Tuesdays at 5 pm and Teen movie night on Wednesdays at 5 pm, they will have an extra chance of winning additional prizes. Adults can write down the name of the books they read and enter our weekly adult drawing also. 0-6 Storytime will be held on Thursdays @ 10:30. Mondays will be a program for all ages at 3 except for June 23rd. June 24th (Tuesday) will be the all age program for eating lunch with a meteorologist.
