    Summer Reading Program is always an exciting time for us. This year is even more exciting because we have new friends moving into our library. 

    We are always looking for ways to provide our patrons with the best library experience possible. As we live in our building, which still seems new to us, it is hard to make changes. But we are going to do it! 

    We are adding some new elements in our children’s area to create a fun, dynamic reading and play space. This will include two new caterpillars that will become a part of our library family.
