The "Every Hero Has A Story" Summer Reading Program Finale Party was held Tuesday, August 18th. The children discovered and celebrated the superhero within themselves. They created and dressed up in their superhero costumes and then completed Superhero Training Academy. Our super fast, strong, and intelligent superheroes practiced their superhero pose and then enjoyed pizza donated by Croghan Nice-N-Easy.
Participants who completed the "Every Has A Story" program received a "Super Reader" reading certificate, a book, and prizes. Awards for perfect attendance were received by Emily Knight, Kendra Roggie, Claire Roggie, and Paige Roggie. Award for most books read by a family reader was received by Eli Zehr. Award for most books read by an independent reader was received by Emily Knight. Congratulations to all participants!

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.
