The Summer Reading Challenge has come to an end, and what a great summer it has been! With over 750 people signing up for the challenge, we’ve seen an astounding celebration of reading and lifelong learning in our community. In June, over 2,400 people attended exciting and engaging programs for the whole family. We are absolutely thrilled to welcome so many new and familiar faces to our branches – your dedication and love of libraries has shined through!
Though summer is wrapping up and kids are heading back to school, the library remains a valuable resource throughout the entire year. Whether you need a quiet place to study, affordable entertainment options, or an escape from the commotion of daily life with a good book, the library is here for you.
Thank you for making this summer one of our best!
