SUMMER READING PROGRAM HEATS UP

Our “Every Hero Has a Story” Summer Reading Program has started out with a BANG! We already have several youngsters and teens exploring their superhero strength and imaginations. Sign up anytime this summer and you’ll have a chance to win prizes, even a shiny new bicycle. Teens rev up those reading and writing skills to win awesome prizes that range from ear buds, to Amazon gift certificates, and pizza from Annie's Pizza Station. Be Super Crafty every Friday at 11am for superhero crafts. And on Silly Saturdays find five silly things and win a prize.


July 31 we will have our BIKE DRAWING for Summer Reading Participants. For every 800 minutes you read or every Bingo card you finish, enter your name in the drawing to win a brand new bicycle. View Summer Reading details and our calendar of events by clicking HERE.
