Teen Summer Reading Kick-Off

Our Teen Summer Reading Program starts this Saturday, June 16th. Earn prizes for reading over the summer and enter to win a different gift card each week. The theme this year is "Own the Night," so look forward to ghost hunters, horror movies, bats, and more! The program is open to grades 6-12. To kick-off the program, from 1 to 3pm this Saturday, teens can have their tarot cards read in the Teen Area.

Bring the whole family because the Adult Summer Reading Challenge and the Children's Summer Reading Program also start this Saturday. Kids can come register for Dream Big- READ! between 10am and 4pm at our fun kick-off event.

Dinner and a movie change

We recently learned that the release date for the movie originally selected for our final Dinner and a Movie of the season (the Best Picture winner, no less) has been pushed back until June. So we've had to change our selection to this movie based on a book about a father who buys a countryside zoo with his kids and tries to make a go of it. Alexander the Great is catering, so please join us for what is still sure to be a treat.
