Celebrate Your Freedom to Read

Banned Books Week is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read. Typically held during the last week of September, it highlights the value of free and open access to information. Banned Books Week brings together the entire book community — librarians, booksellers, publishers, journalists, teachers, and readers — in shared support of the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular.

Eclipse Event

 Come Watch the Eclipse with us!

You can create Sun Cookies, play eclipse trivia and best of all… use your pinhole box to watch the eclipse, or share our NASA approved, safe Eclipse Glasses.  Please be aware: we will have several glasses on hand, but they will stay at the library viewing party for everyone to share, because we don’t have enough to give away to everyone.

Please remember, don’t look at the sun during the eclipse (or any time!) without safe eclipse glasses. We are not in the path of totality, so there will be plenty of time for everyone at our viewing party to take a turn with the glasses to see the partial eclipse between 1:30 and 4:00. The maximum coverage will be around 2:43.

Summer Reading went out with a bang!

…or a hop!

Simon Brooks hopped his way into our hearts and delighted the audience at the Summer Reading finale this afternoon! A total of 183 children signed up for summer reading, and altogether we read close to 1300 hours (with reading charts still pouring in!).

The summer reading prize cart will linger on through next week, so bring back the rest of your reading charts and keep reading! We are so close to meeting our 1400 goal!
