We very much miss you! Are you missing us, and any of our storytimes or fun crafts? We've been keeping busy, and we're still offering weekly videos of that and more! Check out all of the YouTube videos we've made so far! We have also been putting them up on our Facebook account too!

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten


Due to the inability to offer in-person programs for much of the Summer, this year's Summer Reading challenge will consist of a number of various tasks to complete in order to earn prizes and be entered to win a prize.

  • Complete FIVE tasks to win a prize pack at the end of the summer!
  • Complete all tasks to be entered to win a GRAND PRIZE t-shirt!

Follow along online using Beanstack, or print out and track your progress with our BINGO card.
