Here are the amazing results! (And if a title sounds interesting, you are in luck - all of the titles are available for check-out. Just visit our online catalog.) Enjoy! -Elaine

We've had such a great time this summer celebrating reading - "Have Book, Will Travel." We've made our own rope, visited outer space, and listened with rapt attention to young performers during the Bow-Dacious String Band concert. Summer reading continues through the end of August, with the readers' raffle drawing on Friday, August 30. (Remember - Thursday, August 29th is the last day to enter your books to be eligible for the raffle!) Check out our photo gallery from the past month. What have you been doing? We'd love to hear from you. -Elaine B. Read more about Summer Reading is Cool
Last week, young patrons greeted some very unusual visitors to the library - miniature horses! Star, Rascal, Faith and Linzee arrived in Deb Murphy's trailer.

Afterwards, children had the opportunity to write a letter or color a picture for the horses. We look forward to their next visit! -Elaine B. Read more about Hoofing it for Reading
