Registration begins in person on June 28th from 2-6pm

We won't be having our usual party, but we will have some fun with music and dancing, animal adoption and of course, what could be more fun than visiting the library and seeing all your favorite librarians? Stop by for our kick off and enjoy the fun atmosphere. If you can't make it in to see us on June 28th that's OK, registration will be open until July 13th! Stop by or join virtually on Beanstack!

This year, each time your registered child finishes a challenge sheet and turns it into Miss Wendy or Miss Jen, they get to chose from our cool cart of prize books! The more sheets they fill in the more prize books they get! They also get automatically registered for our end of summer reading prize bags!

**We ask that if you register for Summer Reading you do so either in person or virtually for the entire summer.**

We are happy to answer any questions you may have. 

We can't wait to see you!
