Congratulations to all our Summer Reading Program participants who have completed reading 10 books, or completed 10 hours of reading.
You should have received an email on Friday, July 24th, with instructions for how to obtain your free book for completing the program.
Monday, July 27th update – we have received many calls today from those who have completed their reading and are calling in to select their free book. The phone lines may be full when you call – we appreciate your patience if we have to put you on hold!
Since we will be concentrating this week (July 27-31) on the distribution process for those books, there will be a short break in virtual programs this week. We are looking forward to resuming our virtual Mother Moose, Parents and Twos, and Preschool Storytime programs beginning August 3rd.
