July Schedule

June flew by in a flood of raindrops. Everyone is hoping that the clouds will finally move on and the next two months will finally feel like summer. At least the wet weather has encouraged reading.
The Library has planned another summer reading program for children with some fun events scheduled. The theme this year is Be Creative @ Your Library. The program will kick off on Monday July 6 with an appearance by pirate Black Jim Spudcake at 2:00. Children who want to take part in the reading program are welcome to come at 1:30 to sign up and get handouts and information about upcoming events. The program is free and open to the public.
