The library's July family party will be from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday, July 29. Readers who have completed all four weeks in July are invited to join us at Prentis Park Pool to really "Make a Splash!" Successful readers should bring logs in to the library to get Week 4 for July punched and receive swimming passes for themselves and their families.
On Friday, July 30, the library will hold its Closing Carnival. It is an Open House and readers and their families may join any time between 1:30 to 4 p.m. There will be games, activities, snacks and prizes. The quilt raffle drawing will take place at 4 p.m. Tickets are available at the library until that time. The quilt squares were created by our young readers. Tickets are $1 for one ticket or $5 for six tickets and you need not be present to win.
The 1000-Minute Club Party will take place at Westside Inn and Mini-Golf at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Aug. 2. This party is for Beginning and Intermediate Readers who met the goal every week throughout June and July and also read at least an additional 200 minutes. Stop in the library with your log and get your button if you qualify. The library's readers have turned in more than 180,000 minutes so far.
Readers need to complete their minutes and bring logs in before our 9 p.m. closing on Wednesday, July 28. The Tide Pool Treasures Store will be closed after that so we can prepare for the carnival.
