Take a Break with Library Summer Programs
Summer programs for Adults and Teens? Yup. We have created some fun challenges and "missions" for you, based on local places and facts - and reading, of course. All safely distanced but getting you out of your normal routine. Create your own account and log in at https://pillsburyfree.readsquared.com to sign up for Missions, track your progress, win points towards "badges", and be entered in a prize drawing at the end of summer. Or ask for a paper copy. Starts July 13. Learn more...next week.
