This summer, out of an abundance of caution, we have decided not to have children’s gatherings inside the library as part of the summer reading program. That said we have still been working hard to make our Summer Quest 2020 as hands-on, interactive, creative and screen-free as possible.
Plus, we have created reading challenges that are VERY easy to log and minimize the amount of time spent online.
To learn more about how our challenge will work, click on the link to the Summer Quest 2020 Reading Challenge Flyer PDF which includes all the details. You can print it out to let your child record their reading on paper. Then follow the instructions on the form when your child is finished.
We have also included links to the informational flyer about Beanstack, a video created by our children’s librarian to help you get set up and information about ways to access electronic resources for children made available by our library. We also have a link to a PDF with information about our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program.

Reading R.A.C.K. (Reading Advice for Caregivers and Kids)
Our library staff is always happy to help you find books and materials and make suggestions. Additionally, in our children’s department we have a rack with a variety of notebooks with book lists, book marks and other resources we have created to guide your child’s journey of reading and learning.
Line-Up Your Next Great Read
Line-Up Your Next Great Read is a bulletin board we have hanging in the back of the children’s department. There is a line hanging on the board with laminated reading lists attached with clothespins. Feel free to take down a list to help you browse and return the list when you are through.
Many of our booklists are also available online through Beanstack. You will find these lists under your Recommendations tab when you are on the reader’s main page.
