Our Summer Readers Shine!

What a great summer it's been! This year kids visited the museum, dressed up as their favorite book character, did origami, identified plants in the library's garden....and a whole lot more! 143 kids completed 1780 challenges. We loved seeing kids and families visiting the library to solve puzzles, do research, and find great books to read.  Our Summer Reading Challenge is about so much more than reading! We challenged kids to learn new skills, get creative, and have fun learning - and that's just what they did.

While our Summer Reading Challenge is over for another year - we've got big plans for next year and are always looking for new ideas. Have an idea to help us improve? We want to hear it! ›

We're excited to announce that we've added a new prize to our Summer Reading Challenge. Starting this year kids K-12 who complete the most challenges will be entered into a special raffle- two $250 prizes will be awarded - one to a boy and one to a girl. 

The prize, given by Jeanette and Stewart Ness, is in memory of Jon Ness and celebrates his love of reading. A love they hope to pass on to future generations.
