On the Waterfront

A Big Thank You!

School has started, summer is waning, but the memories of another successful summer reading program here at the Library are still strong. For those of you who follow our Facebook page you know there have been some pretty happy kids leaving this place with a book in hand that is theirs to keep. Kids participating in the program were also able to pick out a book for the library that will have their name listed inside as the donor. The excitement that both of these rewards create is so fun to see. All of this is possible because of the many businesses and organizations that support our summer reading program. We sincerely thank all of them. You can show your thanks too by patronizing their businesses and giving them a big thank you in person.
