The Library in Your Community


We are very excited about our Summer Reading Program this year! Last year we had over 700 children and teens sign up, great programs, and lots of fun! This year we look forward to even more. We have a variety of events and prizes to earn to encourage our young students to explore the wonderful world of books!


To spread the word to our community of readers, our wonderful librarians will be visiting the following schools during June:

Kensico Elementary School - June 7
Virginia Road School - June 9
Bedford Road School - June 12
Hawthorne Elementary School - June 13

 If you have children in those schools, we look forward to meeting them!
