Summer Reading Program has concluded, but to say that “Libraries
Rock” would be an understatement from the level of participation
throughout the program. Messy art, music with the “Songs of
Emigration” and the Ukeladies, turtles, theater and movies were all
well-attended. These programs were in addition to the 28
participants who had actually signed up to read throughout the
summer and subsequently receive prizes for their efforts. For
those who didn’t attend the finale, bring your completed contracts
to the library and receive your prizes! Thanks to all who came
and thanks to all who helped.

clothing and bring their own yoga mat.
