We have been proud to host 5 School Nights at the library this spring.  Over 500 people have attended these evening open houses which featured raffle drawings, a scavenger hunt, and guest readers.  Many thanks to the school principals, teachers, librarians, and reading specialists for making the evenings such a success.
