Summer Library Adventure

Our 2020 Summer Library Adventure is going to be so much fun! Unfortunately, we will not be able to do any of the programs you might have seen advertised in the Summer 2020 issue of The Park Bench, but from June 1 to July 31, we will have virtual programs for all ages. 

To track your reading, all ages will be using a Bingo card! No registration is necessary, simply pick up a bingo card from the Library or download your own from below:

AND a chance to win one of three prize packs (5 horizontal lines + 5 vertical lines + 2 diagonal lines + 1 blackout = 13 possible entries per person/per card).

Show us your card every time you get a Bingo to pick a book from the book closet and return your card no later than August 3, 2020 for a chance to win a prize pack. Drawing for prize packs on August 7, 2020
