Celebrating the freedom to read!

Our staff has made a great display of some of the banned books in our collection. Come in and see why they were banned from some libraries years ago. You can borrow any of these books, of course. Just ask one of us to take it out of the display case.2016-banned-book-week-1

Summer Reading Program

Our Summer Reading Program continues until school starts in September! I challenge every student to read a book every day! (It doesn’t have to be a long book like Harry Potter.) I know you can do it, and I’ll give lots of prizes and rewards!
