Sydney gets a lift from her mom while playing a gigantic game of Connect 4.

Big games meant GIGANTIC fun during the Fee-Fi-Fo-Fun party at our Lake Branch this week!

Kids played enormous versions of Jenga, Connect 4, checkers, and more! And since we were playing GIANT games, we thought it would also be fun to for the kids to plant some Magic Beans that they could take home.

The next time you’re at the library, don’t forget to sign up for Summer Reading! This year’s theme is Imagine Your Story and we’re hosting programs all summer long about fairy tales, myths and magic.

Kids, teens and adults can all win spectacular prizes for reading this summer. Kids (those entering sixth grade or younger) can earn a raffle ticket for every hour they read or are read to. The more they read, the better chance they have to win one of the library’s prizes.

Kids who read at least 20 hours during Summer Reading will also earn a golden ticket and a chance to win a $50 gift card to Target.

Meanwhile, teens (those entering seventh grade and older) and adults can earn raffle tickets two ways. First, they can earn a ticket for each book they read. Next, they can earn up to 10 bonus tickets by completing different challenges. Each ticket means a better chance of winning.
