Summer Reading Party 2017!!

Thanks to all our Summer Readers for making this another awesome year!! We had a blast with Jungle Jim at our Summer Reading Party yesterday!


Summer Reading Party is Tuesday, August 22!

The big day is almost here! Our Summer Reading Wrap-Up Party is less than a week away! Kids who’ve completed a bingo on their reading log are invited to join us on Tuesday, August 22nd at Town Hall (71 Mt. Vernon Street) at 3:00pm. We’ll have games, crafts, snacks, prizes, and an amazing performance with Jungle Jim!


We’ll also be drawing names for our raffle that’s been going on all summer! Each week we’ve had a game to play here in the library. If you won, you filled out a raffle card. We’ll be pulling names and announcing winners at the party! The raffle will start around 4:00pm. You don’t have to present to win, but people who are at the party will get first pick of our prizes. We’ve got books, school supplies, gift certificates, and even a couple Kindle Fires!


Make sure that you bring your reading log with you, because that’ll be your ticket at the door.


We can’t wait to celebrate all the reading you’ve done this summer at our Summer Reading Party!!
