The library will have an open house on Saturday, May 23rd, from 1 until 4 p.m. This will kick-off the 100-year anniversary celebration of the Carnegie Library building.
The Summer Reading Program will be held June 1st to July 31st for adults and young adults. A log sheet will be given to everyone who registers. There will be a winner selected for the most books read in the adult and one for young adults.
The Summer Reading Program for youth this year is based on the theme, “Every Hero Has a Story.” Program registration will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 27.
Weekly story times and activities will be held each Tuesday from June 2 through July 7. Children currently in kindergarten and younger will meet at 9 a.m., while older children will meet at 10 a.m. There will be stories, crafts and snacks each time.
Youth will keep a log of books read, or for younger children, a list of books read to them. Those meeting their summer reading goal, will receive a special reward at the end of the summer.
Reading over the summer is great for relaxation, as well as keeping school skills sharp. One of the best things about the summer reading program is that it’s free and several special programs will be offered.

Library staff members have been busy weeding out the shelves for older or less popular books. This fresh supply of items will be placed on our book sale table. The cost is only 25 cents per book or $1 for a bag full. (We’ll even supply the bag.)
