Other Fun Summer Activities
Usborne Book Party at the Library
July 6th 10am-4pm (open house style)
This is a perfect opportunity for two things:
#1 Pay off Library fines: We have a deal with fines and these parties. If you buy a book at this party and donate it to the Library we will take the cost of the book, double it and take it off your fines. So, a $10 book purchase clears our $20 worth of fines! Plus, you get to help us chose super great books for our kids and teens.
#2 Stalk up on books for your kids. Usborne has books for all ages of kids and even activity books perfect for these long summer days.

Make It! Teen Only Craft Day at the Library
