The Summer Reading Activities Calendars Are Here!

Check out all of the exciting things we have planned for the summer! Mailers will be going out and available to pick up very soon. Many of these will be events on our Facebook page as well.

Don’t forget that we’re also in need of teen volunteers for the summer! See this post for details.

The Library Needs Teen Volunteers for Summer Reading!

This year, we’ll have our teen volunteer program again during summer reading! They were such a big help last summer and we welcome those are looking for community service hours, practice working with kids, or just something fun to do. There are several different types of things volunteers can assist with, from set up and clean up of activities, reading stories during Storytime, helping kids with activities, signing patrons up for summer reading, checking reading logs, and other tasks they’re comfortable doing. We’ll be working around their schedules and can help as much or as little as they’d like.

Volunteers should be ages 13-18. Applications are available at the library, can be emailed to you, or you can download it below, and are due Friday, May 24!

Summer Reading Fundraisers Happening Now!

We have a couple of quick fundraising activities for our summer reading program this year! We have big plans for the Adventure-themed activities that we’re packing into June and July, but we could use a little help to make it all happen! There are two easy ways to contribute to the summer fun.

First, to go along with our special summer reading Amazon wish list, we’ve put up a Giving Tree in the library. Each leaf on it has a dollar amount and item for something that we need for summer reading activities and prizes. You can pull a leaf and either just donate the money for us to purchase the item(s) or order it directly from the wish list to be sent to us! We also have a few leaves for the partial sponsorship of a grand prize basket that we will put together.

We’re also hosting a special craft night fundraiser with TWO project choices (wooden sign wall decor OR summer wreaths with mesh, ribbon or flowers) and snacks and drinks provided! We’re just asking for a $5 donation that will go straight into supplies and prizes for our “Adventure Begins at the Library” summer reading program this year.

RSVP is required You can do so by going to the Facebook event or by contacting us.
