Our Awesome Summer

squirrelrszWe’ve added everything up and, just as we thought, we had a very busy summer.  Between the four library sites we presented 78 programs to children, teens, and adults.   A total attendance of 6, 685.   We also circulated 65,812 items during June, July and August.
That’s awesome.

Ask a Librarian

askLibrarianAsk a Librarian–the human search engine.

Online chat is available to ask a (live) librarian questions.  This person will help you search online to find answers.

The service is available Sunday through Thursday, 10am to 12midnight, and Friday and Saturday from 10am to 5pm.

Perfect for those times when you need an answer and the library is closed!

Reading Aloud

Research shows that families play an important role in children’s reading success.  By reading aloud with your children and encouraging them to read on their own, you are helping them become better readers, better listeners, and better students.

You are also helping them build vocabulary and language skills, and helping them gain knowledge about the world around them.

When you read aloud together, children learn quickly that reading in important.  Most of all, the learn that reading is fun!

It’s never too early—or too late— to start.  All children, even infants and teens, can benefit from listening to you read aloud.
