Last chance to turn in those Summer Reading Program logs! Stop by the Main Library, turn in your reading log and get your free book and a reusable book bag for the family. The book fair runs through Friday during regular library hours. Available books can be viewed on the library’s Facebook page or on posters at the library. Unfortunately, we will not be offering additional books to purchase this summer.
