The theme of the Summer Reading Program is “Build a Better World.”

In addition to actual “building/engineering” programs for kids and teens, the Library is building a better world by giving back to the community.

We have crafting classes for children, teens and adults where they can make and donate items for animal shelters, senior facilities and women’s shelters.

We’re also encouraging patrons to participate in our Random Acts of Kindness program. Starting June 26, the Library has an “Acts of Kindness” jar with suggestions for good deeds to do in our community. Stop by to pull a suggestion from the jar. Suggestions are color coded for children, adults and families.

Thank you for helping us Build a Better World!
