Hundreds of children have already jumped right in to “Make a Splash” at T. B. Scott Library by reading for fun and prizes. Parents and other caregivers are encouraged to make sure their children stay involved in reading and learning throughout school vacation.
Stop in any time during regular library hours to pick up or return reading cards. Youth services staff will be delighted to provide more detailed information on summer programs as well as suggestions for books and other materials appropriate to each child’s age and interest levels.
