Another Holiday Reading Program Success
During November, children could sign up and then read for minutes towards the Holiday Reading Program and earning Library Bucks. The Library Holiday Shop for spending Library Bucks was this past Saturday, Dec. 2 and most of them shopped-til-they-dropped. The program was a great success this year with more than $1,900 in Library Bucks spent and over 95 shoppers.

Quote of the day: "Mom, this is like Black Friday shopping for kids!"
