  • Summer Reading Program begins May 15 with kickoff

    I love movies, and many of my life mantras come from John Hughes’ movies. I am not sure what that says about me except my age! But one mantra that has stuck with me lately comes from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

    Ferris reminds us that “life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”

    While 2016 could not end fast enough, 2017 is on fast-forward! Believe it or not, it is time to kick off the Summer Reading Program.
