Village Branch Library
Summer Reading at the Library starts June 5th and runs until July 28th. This year’s theme is “All Together Now” which focuses on friendship, community, unity, diversity, and equality. We will have special programs/performers throughout the summer that will help reinforce this theme. Watch for a postcard in the mail the last week of May that includes a reading/activities log. When you complete your log, you can bring it in to any library branch for a completion prize and will have your name entered into our grand prize drawing.
