Wow! Summer Reading Club flew by. The new online registration and logging software worked very well. Close to 800 young readers logged over 11,500 hours of reading this summer. There's still time to snag some more reading time. Keep checking out those books, and books on CD. (And, ok, some DVDs and video games, too - before school begins!)
Take a look at the What's New Display to see the brand new books the library has added to the Children's and Young Adult sections.
The Youth Services Department, (Mrs. Chaply and I) were sad to see our two summer staff people, Erin Lease and Dorothy Chan, go back to college. They helped the Summer Reading Club run smoothly here and in the Parkland School libraries.
Thanks go out to all the volunteers, teens and adults, who made the Stories in the Schools programs so much fun this summer and who helped with programs in the library and with shelving and keeping things in order this summer.
