Don’t forget to turn in your tickets for Summer Reading!
Update 8/3/2020 – thank you all for participating! You have a couple more days to turn in books you read in July and put in tickets for prizes!! We will be drawing prizes on Wednesday.
The summer reading theme for this year is Imagine Your Story. This year due to the pandemic, we have had to re-imagine our summer reading program events a bit, so this year we will have a mix of virtual programs and activities you can do at home. If you have any questions, please reach out to Miss Alyce at firstname.lastname@example.org or 401-647-5133 ext 103
