Summer Reading Logs and Bingo Sheets due Tuesday!

Make sure to bring those in before we close on Tuesday, July 28th if you want to enter one of our drawings!

Children may turn in their first log late, but they will not be able to enter one of our drawings and only first logs will be accepted after the 28th.

If you have already turned your items in and have received a pool party invitation, please call us and let us know which pool party you will be attending- Friday night July 31st or Saturday night Aug. 1st- if you can :) Youth drawings will be done at the Friday pool party, but your child does not have to be present to win. We will also raffle off a few leftover prizes to only those in attendance at both pool parties. Top readers in the Kindergarten through High School age groups will be announced at both pool parties. The adult drawing will be held before the pool parties and winners will be contacted by phone.

You have 5 more days, get reading!
