The 2013 Summer Reading Program, “Dig into Reading!” finished this year with bigger numbers than ever before. 2012 children and young adults signed up for the Program this year, and 154 completed the program by reading their 12 books. The library hosted a total of 17 events, which 694 kids attended!

The Library was honored to partner with some fabulous local businesses this year, including Simple Simon’s Pizza, which helped out with pizza for our closing party, Huddle House of Piedmont, which was extremely generous with gift certificates, and especially Forever Sunrise Organics/The Learning Farm, which used their time and talents to make a special summer of outdoor fun for the kids. The staff of the Library are very grateful to all of these businesses, as well as the individuals who volunteered their time and the parents who brought their children to participate.

As summer winds down, the Library is stocking up on new books! Come check out what coming in. Some new titles include:
