Summer Reading is Here!

Mon., Jun. 5
School ends, summer vacation begins and suddenly kids are free to play, be outside, go to the pool or do fun things. Here at the library our favorite season is just beginning. That means we are gearing up for Extravaganza and the start of Summer Reading.

The Importance of Play

Play supports literacy and learning; it is the conduit through which children develop both the ability and readiness to learn.
