Summer Reading @Your Library has been a lot of fun so far and there is still room for your entire family to participate. Children can read on their own or with families and we have incentives for the number of hours you read. Plus, on Friday mornings at 11:30 join Miss Anna and Miss Debbie for special stories, activities and crafts that make reading fun!

This year’s theme is “Get Set, Get Ready, READ!” At last week’s Friday session, the kids learned about doing yoga and the good it can do for your health and well-being. Marita Kleissler taught a session of yoga to a classroom full of eager readers. After the final deep breath, one little reader proudly announced, “I feel SO much better now!”
