Summer Reading - Week 1 

We have early access to Janet Riehecky's Dinosaur Encounter program, so we're giving you a head start on earning your first brag tag- the Pokemon "Gotta Read Em All!" tag is up for grabs! Watch the program and then tell us one thing you learned and you'll earn your Pokemon tag. Also, make sure you're signed up for Summer Reading by downloading the Reader Zone app. Don't want to deal with an app? We have paper reading logs at the library too. Enjoy this wonderful, educational program. Dig Deeper ...and keep reading!

There is no deadline, but kits may run out so don't wait too long. Tag us in a photo of yourself with your completed craft or stop in and tell us one thing you learned or enjoyed about Ms. Rita's story and earn your "Get hooked on Reading!" brag tag. 🐳🐟
