Reading Colors Your World | Summer Reading Program 2021 June 14 - July 24

Stop by the library to pick up a reading log this summer. Children will receive a free book when they sign up. Adults and children can complete the log and bring it back for a prize! We also have a variety of special events going on. Can you collect all of the participation stickers?



Outdoor Storytime

Every Friday, 10:00 am at Patton Park Harrington Park

Join us in person for a fun but physically distanced storytime for pre-k to second graders and their grownups. We recommend bringing your own blanket to lay on the grass. In the event of rainy or inclement weather, this program will be cancelled.

Update: Due to the ongoing construction in front of the library, our little park is out of commission for the time being, but we will still be having storytimes at our new location: Harrington Park (pavilion by the playground)!
