Drumming About You

We hope everyone has been having a fabulous summer! It's certainly been super-busy here at the library. We want to remind our summer reading program participants that there is still time to do a lot of reading - the program ends on Thursday, August 18. That is the last day to bring in your reading logs, choose prizes, and enter the grand prize raffle!

We're celebrating the end of our summer reading program with a program called DRUMMING ABOUT YOU (for kids and families) with Bob Bloom at 2:30 PM on August 18. Rock, roll, sway, boogie and swing with Bob Bloom and some of the world’s favorite drums and percussion. Everyone will get the chance to play the drums! For all ages. Registration is required - call 742-7606 or visit our EVENTS page to register.
