Join the Summer Reading Challenge

There’s still plenty of Summer left.  The Friends of the Library are sponsoring this year’s Summer Reading Challenge.  There are four age brackets in the Challenge.  The person in each bracket with the most reading points will receive a $50 Barnes & Noble Gift Card.  There’s a second opportunity to win through a drawing.  For each 25 reading points earned, your name is entered in the drawing.  The Challenge ends Friday, August 25th with a celebration to follow on Saturday, August 26th.

Children are also collecting Reading Patches.  25 reading points = a patch.  This is a year-round program and so is the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.  Start any time.  Find out more by asking at the library.

Hope you’re taking time to enjoy Summer Reading and if you get a chance join us at one of our programs. Or stop by anytime and enjoy The Friends Place.  A beautiful spot to recharge while enjoying the view of the Penokees.

The Friends also sponsor a Little Free Library at Gilman Park.  Take a book and enjoy yourself, share with a friend, or a youngster in your life.  Restocked and cared for by our friend, Betty White.

Hope to see you soon at the Library!
