Keep reading for information about bookplates...


For all of you eager readers who have read more than 30 hours this summer and earned a bookplate, come by the library starting on Wednesday, September 1 to choose the library book in which your bookplate will go.

(Remember that you stop counting your hours on August 19 at 9:00 PM.*)

And no need to rush in on September 1 to choose your bookplate book: you have until October 15 to choose the book for your bookplate!

Congratulations on an awesome summer of reading everyone!!

* Important Note:  You do not have to come in to the library on 8/19 to confirm your hours – we can access your online account after summer reading officially ends.
