Tails and Tales Summer Reading

Tails and Tales Header July 2021
It's the last week of summer reading! Adults, make sure you log your reading hours in Beanstack or show your reading log to a librarian to claim you book sale voucher (for 20 hours of reading) or enter the grand prize raffle (for 50 hours).

Kids and families, make sure to record your hours and stop by to pick up your Lib-Buddy and add-ons. On vacation? Not to worry. Prize pickups will continue after August 20, but logging will end, so as long as you've recorded your reading you'll still be able to pick up your prize.
Lib-Buddy photo shoot
Does your Lib-Buddy live in a fantasy forest? Under the sea? At the library?! Bring your Lib-Buddy to visit any (or all!) Library location(s) for a photo opportunity in our Lib-Buddy habitats. Scenes will be available for photos during open hours between Monday, August 16 and Friday, August 27.
