Are you ready for SUMMER?

We are! And we have a lot planned for you this summer. Below are some highlights:

  • As it has for the past thirty-one years, this year’s Summer Reading Program – that’s SRP from now on – will start with a Turtle Race for ages 4 – 12! That will be on June the 4th, at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. New this year is the parade of turtles, but don’t worry: you don’t have to teach your turtle to walk on a leash (we’ve talked to some turtles and they are very against being walked on a leash.) Instead, bring your child’s trike, bicycle, wagon, or anything else on wheels (non-motorized, please). Decorations optional but encouraged! And of course, bring your turtles – just make sure they’re not snapping turtles, since we want to keep everyone’s fingers intact.
  • Through the rest of June and July, we’ll be offering special SRP performances every Tuesday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm. We’ve invited magicians and storytellers and puppeteers and so many others … you’ll just have to show up to see everything we have in store!
  • For those already signed up for the Bulldogger’s Club (registration is already closed for this, sorry), they will meet every Monday (starting May 30th) at 2:00 pm for read-alouds from the book The Bulldogger’s Club by Barbara Hay and related events.
  • For ages 12-17, make plans to join our Teen SRP and check back here for more details on how to get chances to win a Kindle Fire or an iPod Shuffle. We’ll also be offering some exciting teen programs on Thursdays in July – again, check back soon for more information!
  • And for the littlest guys, our 10:00 am Wednesday Toddler Storytime continues throughout the summer.

We hope to see you all many, many times throughout the summer!

And that means some great holiday programs at your library!

Tomorrow, December 6th, stop by for cookies before the Christmas parade. The parade starts at 7:00 pm, and our front lawn is a great place to see all the action! While you’re here, feel free to take advantage of our free wifi… and of course, all the free books, movies, magazines, and other great things we have to offer. If you don’t currently have a library card, just bring a photo ID and proof of address, and we’ll fix you right up.

For toddlers (and their caregivers) we have special holiday-themed Saturday storytimes on December 8th, 15th, and 22nd, at 10:00 am. And don’t forget our regular storytimes on Wednesdays, also at 10:00 am.

On Monday December 17th, we’ll the hosting “Christmas, Chocolate and Cookies” – a fun night of games and food. Bring a $5 gift for Dirty Santa and 4 dozen cookies for the cookie exchange. We’ll provide snacks!
