Boy have we been busy! Over the summer, we will continue to be busy – looking for new titles, expanding our robotics programming, cleaning up our databases and just getting ready for school to start again.
It’s the last week of school and summer is finally here! Studies show that kids who keep reading all summer do better when they return to school in the fall. Keep it cool by reading on those hot summer days. Library Services has put together this great list of fun reading activities. Can you do all 50 by September?
