Summer Reading has Begun!

Good evening,

Our summer reading program has officially begun, starting today! It was rather rainy and stormy out this morning, so we cancelled the children’s program this morning but did have some patrons show up. Anyone who received our message and did not show up, please feel free to bring your kids in tomorrow at 10AM to enjoy the program with the school age children.

We will be reading a few books, creating Einstein hats, and our project will be Elephant Toothpaste. Stop in to have some fun!

Also a reminder that this Saturday is knitting, so feel free to join us!
