Library News

This summer, we’d like to challenge you to explore the farthest reaches of your imagination with us at the Library. Our 2019 Summer Reading challenge, A Universe of Stories, makes it easier than ever to earn rewards for indulging your curiosity. The challenge launches June 3 and runs through August 31. This year, you can customize your experience by earning badges for a mix of reading and other learning activities, like attending library programs and getting out in the community. 
National Poetry Month, a celebration of poetry which takes place each April, was introduced in 1996 and is organized by the Academy of American Poets as a way to increase awareness and appreciation of poetry in the United States. Many picture books employ rhyme, but there is also a wealth of amazing children’s literature written in free verse or haiku.
Next week is spring break and there is so much going on at the library! Here are just a few of the awesome events for kids and teens taking place next week.
