As Nazareth celebrates its 275th anniversary, we're looking forward to sharing a "super-sized" summer full of fun activities for you and your family at the Memorial Library.  Adults, teens and children will have opportunities to read for fun and perhaps win prizes by participating in our "Super Hero" themed summer reading programs.  Star Wars storm troopers will invade the library on June 6th, and there will be beautiful dulcet guitar music in the living room on the 11th.  In addition to all of the summer events, Toddler Boogie and story times for babies and preschoolers will resume normal scheduling on June 16th.  


We'll end the month by Sipping for Summer Readingat Miguel's Restaurant on Tuesday, June 30th.  Proceeds from this relaxing summer soiree support our summer reading program.


Grab your calendar and check out all of the June events in our library!
