“Build A Better World” at the Library!

This year, the Library’s Summer Reading Programs are all about the many ways you can have fun while you “Build A Better World.” Each week, on Tuesdays, from 10:30 to 11:30, summer readers aged 4 through Grade 12 will have the opportunity to learn something new about the world we live in and even what’s beyond it! Parents may register their children now.
