We're excited about some of the new fall programs that are coming up!
Well, the Summer Reading Program is finally at an end...but what a summer we had! There are so many people and organizations that contributed to our success, we have more people to thank than the recipients of the Academy Awards! A full listing will be posted shortly on our closed circuit TV...please take note, and be as generous in supporting our local merchants as they have been in supporting us!
We have recently added Playaways to our collection and thus far they have received much praise from parents and children alike. And now that summer is ending Playaways are great for siblings who may be sitting and waiting at a dance studio, sporting event, or a meeting their adult is attending. They are also wonderful for long car rides; each child can listen to his or her own story. From picture books to teens, we have a varied selection. An added bonus is that they come with a book of the same title for reading along. Look for them in our audio book section.

Well, the Reporting and Craft Labs are closed for the season, but the Sumjmer Reading Program doesn't officially wrap up until August 31st. You can keep on reading and garnering points for your team right up until then. When you decide you are finished, bring your reading chart to the Children's Desk for one final prize and one final gift coupon. Any books you have added will be credited to your team. Only those who turn in a reading log by the deadline will receive Summer Reading Certificates.
The Summer Reading Program is fast drawing to a close...our Grand Finale is coming up on Friday! Are you working on your entry for the Writing and Illustrating Contest? The deadline is Wednesday, but truth to tell, we'll accept them up until early Friday morning. There are only a few entries thus far, so the odds of winning are in your favor!
Going on vacation? Did you know you can suspend your hold requests so that your items don’t come in while you’re gone? If you’ve been waiting a long time for a title or just don’t want to have to re-request items, just suspend your holds until a date of your choosing.

Boy, what a sizzling summer we've had! I hope you've been enjoying your reading, not to mention all the special events we've had this year...the performers, the Fun Faire, the Touch-a-Truck... If you missed seeing the L. L. Bean Bootmobile, you may get another chance within a year or two. Keith and A.J. really enjoyed spendng time with us and showing off their cool ride. And the Bedford firefighters, police and public works crew also loved being part of the show & tell...they were just awesome!
