Thanks For Making A Splash

Did you have fun reading with us this Summer? We all had a great time! I'd really appreciate it if you would each write one comment about this year's Summer Reading and leave it at the library desk.

You can continue to add minutes online until midnight on Saturday, August 21st. You then have until August 31st to turn in your remaining Time Trackers and completed Bingo sheets. We'll add those final Tracker minutes to your totals and have the drawing for the Family Fun Pack on September 1st. Good luck!

Are you keeping track of the minutes you read? Remember, all the names on the Time Trackers, including those you enter online, will be put into the drawing for our Family Fun Pack. You want to be sure your name is in the bowl.

There is still time for the preschool-Kindergarteners, with 2,745 minutes and the 1st-3rd graders with 3,905. Parents of these younger groups, bring in those Time Trackers so we can record your minutes!
