It’s time for Summer Reading Club again! There’s no better way to enjoy a lazy summer day than with a good book! Summer Reading is a great time to try a new genre, read that classic you feel guilty about not finishing in college, or try an e-audiobook or e-book on your tablet. Sign up for Summer Reading Club and earn some raffle tickets for great prizes! We’ll have raffles for kids, teens and adults; stop by the main Information Desk or the Information Desk in the Children’s Room to get signed up.
