“Hey, Kids!” is returning this summer! With summer reading winding down we are partnering with the Fresh Start Convenience Store this year to offer incentive for children to keep reading! The program is for children of all ages and begins with coming to the library and setting a goal of how many books or pages per week you think you can read and then reading that goal for two weeks. Once the goal is read for two weeks participants are eligible for a certificate to the Fresh Start Convenience store for a small Parrot Ice or other items and then are ready to begin the next two week cycle. Stop by the library for more details!
