We have a great new website as of last week, with all sorts of helpful information to help you find books, renew items or place holds, fix your small engine or your car, get reliable medical information, download e-books and audiobooks, read online magazines, and more—all at

Have you entered our new logo photo contest yet? We have extended the deadline to enter photos until Aug. 30, so if you’re out in the back yard or at the campsite, take a picture of someone reading under a tree and submit it—you could win a prize! Details are on our new website, under the News and Events tab.

Entry forms may be picked up at the library.

Summer Reading Club starts July 8, so if you haven’t yet registered your child aged six to 12, please drop by the library as soon as possible to do so.

With a theme of “Funny Business,” they’ll be doing fun activities and crafts, and there will be prizes and medals for keeping up with their reading over the seven weeks of the club.

Our summer student, Thao Atkinson, has been hard at work planning the weekly programs.

We’re also running Summer Storytime for kids aged three to five with their parent or caregiver, involving stories, songs, fingerplays, puppets and simple crafts.

Storytime is on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 until Aug. 6. Siblings are also welcome at this free drop-in program.

We’re in need of large soup or coffee cans for crafts for the Summer Reading Club. If you are able to donate any, we would appreciate having them soon as they are needed for the second week (July 15). Thank you!

Our beautiful quilts are on display in the library, and we will be out on Founder’s Day in the park selling raffle tickets. Be sure to purchase one or more and support your library—this is a major fundraiser for the year.

Have a wonderful summer!
