Don’t forget: The Summer Reading Program at the library starts on Monday, June 11 at 10 AM and will be every Monday for six weeks, ending on July 23. The program will last about an hour each Monday, and there will be storytime, crafts, and fun.
The theme this summer is Reading Is So Delicious! and it should be exciting. Registration is required and we hope that you’ll join us to cook up some fun.
Just wanted to remind everyone that we will be closed this weekend for the Memorial Day holiday.
We will be closed on Friday for the AFMC Family Day, and on Monday for Memorial Day itself, and we will be closed on the weekend in between the two.
We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause anyone, and we will reopen on Tuesday, May 29 at our normal time.
And don’t forget that our Summer Reading Program starts next month for the kids. Registration is required, and we hope to see you on Monday, June 11 at 10 AM for our first session.
