Excelsior! It is that time of year again. Yes Summer Reading is starting this June and our theme is "Every Hero Has a Story".   

Here is just some of the fun the Library has planed for this summer. 

For Children

For Adults
Look for great summer reads both on our new book shelves and down on the lower level. Seriously folks, relax for a few minutes by browsing the "back file" shelves on the Lower Level. Serendipity is a wonderful thing - you never know what gem you'll find!
