We are thrilled to have nearly 40 young readers signed up for our summer reading contest! Ages 4 – 16 are reading 5 books from our digital branch and 5 books from our bricks and mortar branch. After every two books read, contestants qualify for a trip to our treasure chest, for a maximum of 5 trips. There is also a special project to earn 10 additional tickets for the drawing. Call us if you need more information.

And, we are in the process of acquiring titles for both our digital branch and our shelves on Apolo Avenue. New Arrivals in the digital branch include science fiction (Lagoon), books on botany (Botany for Dummies and Soil Science Simplified), and new titles for the young adult and children’s fiction sections. In the bricks and mortar branch, we have acquired the Caraval Trilogy by Stephanie Garber, more books from the ever popular Wimpy kids series, and Lilac Girls by Martha Hall Kelly. More titles for both branches are being processed….please stay tuned for an update!
