It's hard to believe we are already moving into August! We are celebrating all of the reading achievements at our Summer Reading Finale on Aug. 1, 6-8 p.m. This year's finale is all about the water. Dress appropriately because the chances of getting wet are very high. We have so many awesome games and fun challenges involving water. Parents don't worry, you should be fairly safe to stay dry, but if you are inclined, please bring your own big water guns to join in on the games. We will have snacks, henna, face painting and a dunk tank in addition to the water games. Tell your neighbors and friends to come out to the Roberts Park for a night of fun!
Time sheets can be brought in until Aug. 1. Prizes for Summer Reading will be drawn later in August. New prizes will be added just for the last few weeks before school starts for the tickets for checkouts.
