Summer Reading Program participants, please be sure that your reading minutes and “Library Olympics” rows completed are turned in by Friday, August 24, the day after our Salsa Party.

We will be drawing the winners of the prizes on Saturday, so everything needs to be in before then. You can submit your information at any time before the 24th.

We have some amazing readers and participants accumulating a lot of stickers on our chart. Our kids should be very proud of themselves.
