Summer Reading            

Many of you have stopped by to pick up Take and Make kits to do at home. All of our online story times and Take and Make kits videos can be viewed on our Facebook page. Even though we can’t be together, we want to make sure we are offering fun activities for you to enjoy throughout the summer! So stop by and pick up your kits today! 

 Virtual Book Club

You are cordially invited to our first virtual book club on Tuesday, Aug. 25, at 10 a.m. Our first book will be “Elizabeth is Missing” by Emma Healey. I have just finished this book and it was a mystery of twists and turns as the main character, who suffers from Alzheimer’s tries to keep the clues straight. It was an interesting insight into the mind of a loved one who has Alzheimer’s as well.

If you are interested in joining us please send an email to to get the online invitation and information to our Book Club. You can find the book in multi formats on OverDrive or Hoopla. We hope that you will join us at our first virtual Book Club! Trying something new, safely, is what this is all about!
