Get Your Hands on a Good Book!




COMING UP SOON, the Friends of the Library will host the 2nd Annual Glow Swim Party at the Willow Run Pool on Tuesday, July 18, from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m. for participants in our Summer Reading Program. There will be a $2.00 admission, with all proceeds going to the Friends. They will provide the glow sticks, and the pool concession stand will be open.

FOR YOUNG readers anxious to keep the summer reading momentum going, we have new level books featuring some of your old favorites and some new friends. For instance, for the earliest readers we proudly introduce Otto the robot starring in “Go, Otto, Go!” “Ride, Otto, Ride!” and “See Otto.” Otto accidently landed on earth, but is happy with the jungle animals who have befriended him. These are level yellow books with one word or sentence on each page.

IN LEVEL GREEN books, we have “Pete the Cat and the Surprise Teacher,” “Pete the Cat and the Tip-Top Tree House,” and “Pete the Cat and the Treasure Map.” Cool Cat Pete always has groovy adventures and fun friends to share them with. These green dot books have simple sentences with common sight words.

AND BARBIE returns in the “Barbie Sisters Mystery Club” series. Barbie and her friends investigate a haunted boardwalk, a beach bandit, a secret sea monster and a message in a bottle. Children ages 6 to 9 will love to read about Barbie and her sisters as they solve mysteries. Level red books have paragraphs and short chapters with more difficult vocabulary.
