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 9th. Thank you for your participation in the Summer Reading Program.
