The summer reading program starts Wednesday June 1. 

We will have crafts for children on Wednesdays at 3pm at the library.

This year's program is "Read Beyond the Beaten Path."

We will have scavenger hunts, activity pages, and crafts to take home for extra credit.

Prizes for the reading program include robot kits, wooden Lego blocks, 

science experiments we will draw for. 

The grand prize is 2 sets of 2 tickets to a Chicago Cubs home game.

This year we are remembering Carol Whan. She was the director at the library for

many, many years and a long-time employee before that. In her honor, her

son, Chris Whan, has donated 15 hummingbird feeders we will gift to 

children at the kick-off party. 

We will end the program on Wednesday July 20 games and awarding prizes.

Hope to see everyone this summer for lots of reading fun!
