Summer Reading Reminder!

Our superhero summer reading program comes to an end Monday, August 3rd at 5:00 P.M. This gives you just two more weeks to make sure you get your reading logs handed in and receive your prizes! Teens, you must bring in your calendars before then to receive your raffle tickets.

Just a reminder that kids can keep reading after they reach 15 books and these books will be added to their team’s total to try to win the ice cream party. No individual prizes are earned after the 15 book goal.
