Summer has been wonderful at the library.  We had over 1,700 kids from birth through age 11 get prizes for reading!

Now, we are thinking about fall and going back to school.  Stop by the Back-to-School book rack by the Children’s desk for some great school time titles!

Browse the catalog for back-to-school and first day of school books here!
