Children who wish to may fill out Reading Logs or Listening Logs to receive prizes for the number of books they read from the library during the reading program's duration.
Middle School Book Club (Not currently meeting)- The Middle School Book Club is open to children who have finished third grade through sixth grade. The group meets every Thursday from 2:00 to 3:00 P.M. during the months of June and July. A book is selected for the entire group to read, and it is discussed at the following meeting. The children usually do either an art project or a game that goes along with the book, and a snack is served that is book-related. Some of our previous favorites have been Sarah, Plain and Tall; Mr. Popper's Penguins, How to Eat Fried Worms, The Wizard Of Oz, Emily's Runaway Imagination, My Side of the Mountain, The Penderwicks, Amelia Earhart: Young Aviator, and Jeremy Thatcher: Dragon Hatcher.
