Library News

The Barnes and Noble Summer Reading Program has begun.  Children who read 8 books over the summer and return the completed Reading Journal to any Barnes and Noble by September 3, 2018, will receive a free book!  The journal is easy to complete and children can use the same books they read for the Governor’s Reading Challenge.  This is a wonderful incentive to keep reading all summer long!  I will be sending home the Reading Journal with more information about this program and hope all children participate. 

The Silas Bronson Library offers many reading programs and special events throughout the summer.  Please check out the library's website for the schedule of events.  You can also print out additional copies of the summer reading journal.  Have a safe and enjoyable summer, and remember to keep reading!
