'It's Showtime at your Library!' -- Summer Reading Club 2019!

Summer Reading Club 2019 is well under way! We have already had a lot of fun with this year's theme : It's Showtime at your Library and we have a few of our Wizard of Oz related programs yet to come! Join us in our upcoming all-ages book discussion, make a paper plate hot air balloon, and create a rainbow-in-a-jar! Stop in if you have any questions about our final weeks for the program or to sign up for one of the remaining events. Reading logs can be checked in at the Summer Reading Club desk.

We look forward to reading with everyone this summer! The program officially ends with our pool party on July 26. Reading logs must be turned in by Thursday, July 25 in order to qualify for a ticket to the pool party. If you have any questions, contact the library at 815-943-4671.
