We have started the Summer Read Plus: Tails and Tales 2021 with a great celebration about reading for fun! On Saturday, June 26, 2021 we had our signup party with Tanglewood Nature Center (https://www.tanglewoodnaturecenter.com/). Many families came and enjoyed a picnic lunch of hot dogs and socializing with social distance.  At 1:30 Tanglewood Nature Center put on a story hour spotlighting pages with live animals. All were able to get close looks with the animals and were able to touch a couple of the animals. It was a great time for all.

Logging in the time reading started on Monday, June 28, 2021.  There is still time to sign up for the Reading Challenge of 20 hours (1200 minutes) over six weeks (June 28. 2021 – August 6, 2021). All participants who signup are eligible to get a free prize book. You can sign up in the library or online at: http://benedeklibny05.readsquared.com/.  Remember for every two hours of reading participants will earn a raffle ticket for various raffle prizes donated by local businesses and organizations.
