Summer Reading Club Reporting Begins!

It's time to start filling out and handing in your reporting cards for the Young Adult Summer Reading Club.  For every card you hand in-with a thoughtful reaction of a couple sentences-we will hand you a raffle ticket.  Raffle boxes are lined up at the back of the reference desk with pictures of all of our summer prizes.  The number of reporting cards you hand in, and raffle tickets you receive, is unlimited; the more you read, the more chances you get to win a prize!  

And don't forget about our grand prize, a Kindle Fire 8 HD.  For every 5 books (10 graphic novels) you read and report on, you will have one automatic entry into the grand raffle prize drawing.

Don't worry if you haven't signed up for our summer reading club yet.  Come in, any time we're open, to sign up.  You don't want to miss out!

New York Safe Boating Class

Monday, June 27, 6-9pm
Tuesday, June 28, 6-9pm
Wednesday, June 29, 7-9pm

Ages: 10+

Fee: $40 CASH for all ages

New York State law requires that anyone born on or after May 1, 1996 must obtain a boating license.  Additionally, all persons operating personal watercraft (Jet Skis) must have a boating certificate and be at least 14-years-old.  So take this class just in time before the heart of summer; the license earned in this class is good for both boats and Jet Skis and will last for a lifetime.  

You must attend all three classes to obtain a certificate.

Register, with your library card and exact change, at the Reference Desk.

YA Summer Reading Club:

If you love to read then you don't want to miss our summer reading club just for teens (going into grades 7-12). 

After reading one book (or two graphic novels) of your choice this summer complete the Reporting Card and give the card to any librarian at the Adult Reference Desk.  Required summer reading for school counts!  Please provide a thoughtful reaction to the books you read - just a couple of sentences.  One word comments will not be accepted.

For every Reporting Card you hand in, you will receive a raffle ticket that you can put towards your prize of choice. 

Simply, the more books you read, the more tickets you get!
