Adult and Teen Summer Reading: The Bingo cards were a great hit last summer, and we received many requests that we do it again. So we will! Complete a bingo then enter the drawing for a $25.00 Amazon card. For some, the bingo cards feel a bit ambitious, so we are brainstorming ideas so that we can offer and additional way to enter the drawings.
Jam Sessions at the Library in August: Mr. Campbell has offered to hold music jam sessions with instruments and sound equipment at the library (in the community room) during our open hours. Surfing theme/Campfire theme/Jazz them are some theme ideas he is tossing around.
