Time For A Survey

We had a great time with all of you the last six weeks, and hope you enjoyed it, too. If you or your children participated in this year's Summer Reading program, please take a minute to stop by the circulation desk and ask for a survey form. It's just a few questions, and is needed for a grant evaluation. Thanks for your help!

One World, Many Stories Picnic & Finale Program

I hope you're planning on joining us tomorrow (Thursday, August 17th) for our final day of Summer Reading.

Our picnic starts at 12:30; bring a sandwich, and we'll provide the juice, pretzels, and freezer pops.

Our finale program, featuring folk singer Cathy McGrath*, will start at 1:30. This will be a highly interactive program of favorite traditional singing games and funny songs, and is sure to be enjoyed by the whole family. Cathy calls her music Teakettle Music because "it's the sort of music that's steeped in tradition, brewed at home, and shared among friends." What could be better?

*This program is supported in part by Federal Library Services and Technology Act funds, awarded to the New York State Library by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services
