This year the prize earning challenge is going to be for ages 0-18.  Here is an online survey to do sign ups for it. Sign-ups  People can sign their children up now and Kathleen at the library will email the reading trackers out the first week of June.  They will have beads to track earning,  free books for prizes and free comics that people can pick up curbside by contacting them ahead of time to tell them they have earned a prize. 

 

They are also offering yoga for six weeks at the end of June- Mondays at 2pm most likely through an online platform.  Signing up for summer reading will get people on the email list to get updates about yoga and what platform it will be on.

 

All programs are virtual or social distance.  More will be added to the calendar as time goes on.  Let Kathleen know if you have any questions.  The library will be opening for curbside borrowing next week so books will be available to complete the tracker challenge.
