What's New at the Library?

  •  Summer Reading

    The Scholastic Summer Read-A-Palooza is a summer reading program designed to develop lifelong readers by encouraging reading for fun during the summer.

    New for 2020: A brand-new experience for kids in Scholastic Home Base, a free digital destination which offers stories, characters and games, all in a safe community for readers! Through Home Base, kids can make new friends, earn virtual rewards, and help unlock book donations for kids with limited or no access to books by starting and keeping “reading streaks” when they read over the summer.
