School is almost out and it's time to start thinking about summer reading. Stop in at tmusic.JPGhe library for your first bookmark and a plastic book bag beginning June 1. Summer reading is fun and easy!

 Check out books and read! Read (or be read to) books, audiobooks, or ebooks.

Keep track of how long you read. Pick up a special weekly Read to the Rhythm bookmark to keep track of your reading time and activities during the week.  Bring it to the library when that week ends and get another bookmark for the next week.

Each week, beginning June 8, a different "Activity of the Week" will be at the library and on the website.  It may be a word search, guessing game, coloring page, or simple art activity.

Come to programs that interest you. No registration required.
