the next two months, the library will host a range of free
activities for children, teens, and adults to encourage and support
a love of reading. Participants can win prizes or be entered into
prize drawings for reaching their reading goals.
Mark your calendars, our kick off program begins June 8 at 10:00 AM
with a FOAM Cannon on the Carnegie lawn. Donuts and drinks will be
provided by UCB Bank.
The library has planned a wonderful program for kids to make the
library a great place to read, learn, and discover. Seating is

teens every other Friday at 2:00 PM. We offer story time on
Wednesdays at 10:00 AM and 11:00 AM. Themed programs on Thursday at
10:00AM include: Nitro Joe’s Science Show, Silly Safaris, Jason
Kollum Juggling, Richard Landry-Comedy Magician, Birds of a Feather,

Summer reading is an important part of preventing
summer slide. Studies indicate students who read recreationally
outperform those who don’t. Students read more when they have the
opportunity to choose materials based on their interests.
Registration continues throughout the summer. To learn more about
