30 Minute Reading Challenge

     We are excited to talk about our new reading reward program!  Many kids spend time at the library after school or on the weekends to use the computers, iPads and Chromebooks, but we would really like it if they would spend some time reading too.  So to encourage reading and keep our young patrons accounts in good standing we are introducing Read for Library Bucks:  For every 1/2 hour reading earn a credit.  Use your Library Bucks to get credit towards your fines and fees or for a healthy snack.  Kids 14 and under may sign up for this program.


Adult Programs: Every second Saturday of the month during the school year, the library host an adult program. Programs have included The Marble Man from Decatur, Dave Shiley of Home Extension, James Aikman from Aikman Wildlife, and more.
