favorite websites
You can still participate on our Bookawocky Summer Reading website through August 15. Visit our site all summer long to earn online badges by writing book reviews, making book lists, taking quizzes, and writing blog posts to share with others all the cool things you are learning and doing because of the library. We have eight awesome badges: Adventure, Animals, Hands On, LOL, Mystery, Out of This World, Real World, and You Choose. You can earn as many badges as you want, in any combination, and every time you earn a badge you can enter a drawing to win a free book. You can only win a book once, but earning badges will move you up on the leaderboard.

events at your library
We have awesome things going on at our libraries through the end of summer and into the fall! Check out our Library Lab and Learn Together programs and more! You can find information on all our programs on our Events and Classes page.

See you next month.     -Amy   Amy
