Summer reading ends soon!

Summer is almost over, the children are getting ready to return to school, and that means the library's summer reading program is coming to an end. The program officially ends this Saturday, August 11. Providing that we don't run out of prizes, we will still accept reading cards until the end of August. However, after August 11 you will not receive another reading card when you turn in your current card. For example, if you turn in your third card on August 22, you will still receive your third card prize but you will not receive the fourth card.
