Any time of year, visit the branch to read, play, access free Wi-fi, use our computers or attend a program. This is your library and we welcome you to try out different spaces in the library and feel at home. Stay as long as you like!
Summer Reading programs are designed to help children retain their reading, writing and math skills throughout the summer. Of course reading is an emphasis, but programs have so much to offer that all skills are tended to at some point. These children demonstrate the eager learning we saw all summer long at the public library.
Getting ready for school is something we hear often as the first day of school approaches, but at the public library, we have been helping children get ready for school all summer long!
