START AN ADVENTURE!
Explore 1000 Books! A program for families with
children, birth through preschool. This free program
encourages you to read 1000 books with your child
before he or she enters school- a goal experts say
children need to help them learn to read for themselves.
Our kick off date is May 7, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m..
Bring your child/children to the library and register
them. They will receive a record book to keep track of
the books you read and you will receive a special gift for
joining us for our kick off. If you can't make the kick off
day, you may register at any time. Just stop by the
library.

TIMES & LOCATION:
Monday, October 29, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the library.
Tuesday, October 30, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the library.
COST:  $15.00
Cost includes all supplies cut and ready for you. We usually do 6 cards
(3 each of 2 different designs) and a 3D project. Bring scissors. You must
sign up at the library by September 19.  Class sizes are limited, so sign
up early.
CARD MAKING & MORE CLASS!
We will be opening up the basement for anyone wishing to browse the books
for sale. Anytime the library is open, just let the staff know that you would
like to go down to the sale and they will be happy to assist you.
