The Summer Reading Program for kids is gearing up at all libraries in the system. Children are signing up for the great programs and activities scheduled at each location. Be sure not to miss this opportunity to keep your children's minds active all summer!
But don't forget Summer Reading is for grown-ups too!
While the library makes a great effort to keep kids reading all summer, we want adults to read as well. With the cost of fuel continuing to rise, many of us will be doing more armchair traveling this summer. The library has a wealth of travel books and travel-themed books to keep you travelling in your mind.
I'll post a list of some good travel titles later. Today, as temperatures are rising into the 90's, I wanted to provide a list of summer-themed books, all available at the library. Remember: if a particular book is not in your favorite library, I'll be glad to bring it when I make my weekly library visits.
