Tweens and teens are invited to come watch a movie and eat popcorn on Monday afternoons and do STEAM and craft activities on Wednesday afternoons.  Check out the details here

Adults also can join the fun by participating in a special summer reading challenge!  Simply pick up a bookmark at the library or print out this page and read books from the criteria listed and note the books read on the appropriate blank.  We'll have a challenge for June and one for July. There will be a drawing held after each month for a "bookish" prize!   Need some inspiration?
