Summer is in full swing at the library!  Tickets are on sale now at the library for our Sipping for Summer Reading soiree at Miguel's of Belfast.  All proceeds from this event go straight to our summer reading program.  Kids are already reading up a storm for our SuperHero themed reading challenge, and events started up last week.  A new " Makerspace" program will be held on Friday mornings for kids interested in building with legos, kinects, and more! 

Summer reading isn't just for the kids anymore - we have teen and adult programs, too!  Those who take part in our teen and adult reading challenges get a chance to win a variety of prizes!  Details for all three reading programs are below.

Heading to the beach or looking for a gift for a special someone who loves to read?  You can purchase a Memorial Library of Nazareth and Vicinity canvas bag full of new paperback books for $15.

Stay cool this summer at the library!
