Sadly, summer is coming to the end. August 30 is the end of young adult summer reading! Don’t forget to log your books so you can collect your prizes and raffle tickets and be entered in the Grand Prize Drawing. August 30 is also the LAST DAY to collect prizes (and log reading) so come in soon!
If you’re in the children’s summer reading program, don’t forget to come in and collect your prizes! You can no longer log your books, but hurry in to get your prizes and something new to read.
