The summer reading clubs are done for 2011. The library had some amazing presenters for the groups of children and teens. The library thanks the presenters for sharing the special talents. Another thank you to the businesses and families who supported the program with cash and prize donations.
Preschool Story Time is for children three and up; Lap Time is for lap babies up to the age of three; The Bookworm Club is for children in kindergarten and up through high school age. All three programs will begin the second week of September.
