Our summer reading program "Every Hero Has A Story" is open to children age 12 and under. It will be held Tuesdays at 2PM July 7th - August 18th. All programs are free and include a guest speaker, story, craft/activity, and snack. We will be celebrating the heroes who keep our community safe, serve our country, and keep us healthy. Children will also discover and celebrate the superheroes within themselves as they dress up and complete Superhero Training Academy. Registration for the summer reading program begins June 30th immediately after Storyteller Regi Carpenter and continues through July 7th.
Did you know that our library offers thousands of adult, teen, and children's electronic books? Did you know we also have over 60 magazine titles to check out also? Would you like to learn how to borrow from this extensive online digital collection? Stop in and see our librarian and learn how you can check these items out from the comfort of your own home. All you need is a library card to get started.
Please remember to put your items inside a tied plastic bag before putting them in the book drop. Water (melted snow, sleet, or rain) can permanently damage items that are inside. Since we borrow materials from other libraries, if their items get damaged, we reimburse them for their loss. We are looking to get this fixed, but please use due diligence in the meantime.
Ancestry is now available. If you are interested in climbing your family tree, stop by the library and take a look at this program. This is a free service available to our patrons. We can help get you started, or if you need more help or additional information you can contact the Flower Memorial Libray in Watertown and find out upcoming dates of workshops they have regarding this popular topic.
