Winners will be chosen for the following age groups: 3-5, 6-7 and 8-11. Entries are due by 5 pm, Tuesday, May 31. Have fun!

SYNC is a free summer audiobook program for listeners 13+. Running May 5 - August 17, 2016, SYNC will give away two complete audiobook downloads a week, based on weekly themes. Visit the website for a complete list of titles and to sign up for email or text alerts.
Starting June 1st, we will be holding items for 5 days instead of 7 days. This is to help decrease the amount of time a hold sits on the shelf and, in turn, have faster turnaround on items with a waitlist.
To succeed in school and life, children and young adults need ongoing opportunities to learn and practice essential skills. This is especially true during the summer months.
