Summer Reading Challenge - June 27 thru August 6

Exercise your mind this summer! Preschoolers through teens can sign up for a reading log beginning on June 27 and complete fun reading and learning challenges for the chance to win prizes!

Family Fun Shows @ the Main Library Auditorium

Fri., August 5 @ 2:30 pm: Omnipresent Puppet Theater • The Tortoise and the Hare
Tired of being picked on by a pushy rabbit, the tortoise challenges him to a race. As he second-guesses this rash decision, Tortoise suddenly gets help from an unexpected teacher. A tale of hard work, perseverance, and standing up for yourself. Aesop’s fable told with Omnipresent’s fast-paced comic style. Touching and fun for all ages!
