LIRARY NEWS              
The new Saturday Story Time will be on the third Saturday of the month through December and will be organized by Brooke Foye. We have begun advertising for this program and are already receiving positive feedback from families unable to make our weekday story time. Our Summer Library Program is in full swing. We are partnering with the school district in July and August for the summer school reading program where students meet individually with a teacher.
