Final Day of Summer Reading Program

Today was the final day of Summer Reading Program. We had some very special happenings today.  Mary Poppins came to visit and present a story and then she magically transformed and did face painting for the children.  The attendees also got to visit an era long past of crank and dial phones that were provided by Robert Winter.  Fun was had by all.  Visit our Facebook page to see pictures from today.


It's that time again. Our 2016 Summer Reading Program theme this year is Read for the Win. We will race our reading sports cars around the track each week through our reading logs. The program starts this Friday, June 4th and will be each Friday in June from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.
