The summer reading program ENDS Friday, July 28th.

This week is the end of all the library’s summer reading programs! 
All "One World, Many Stories" prizes need to be redeemed by 5:30 on Friday.
We have had about 3 times as many participants as last year so our resources have been stretch to the limit.  Please understand if we run out of prizes.

For the TEEN summer reading program "Novel Destinations" all prizes must be picked up soon (the rewards from the basket & book shelf)!  If you won one of the weekly drawing prizes please pick them up as soon as possible.  We will hold them thru the end of August.
We will have the NOOK drawing at 11 am on Friday, July 28th!  If you win and are not present we WILL hold it for you thru the end of August- or later if you contact us.

Thanks to all the readers who participated but a SPECIAL thanks to the Library Pages who help make it all work, we couldn't do the summer reading program with out them!!!
