This year’s summer reading challenge begins on Monday, June 3rd and is open to participants ages 5 yrs. through 18 yrs. Logs and rules may be picked up at the circulation desk in the library during normal operating hours of 10 am – 6 pm.
All logs are time based and will require that kids read 300 minutes (5hrs) per log. With each completed log they will receive a ticket they can place in the drawing for the prize they want to win. Prize packages are on display in the library throughout the summer.
