A Little Fizz, Some Boom & Lots of Read!

Oh yes, August is here and we are officially at the end of our Summer Reading Program! Today is the last day to log in any books that you have read or listened to. If for some reason you can’t come in to claim your prize today (a free book for the first 10 books OR 500 minutes OR 500 pages), you do have time to do so until August 16th, (I know we are very nice). Remember we were giving you blue flasks to put your stickers on?

Find out what geocaching is, and then find your first one!

You can find geocaches all over – in your neighborhood, at a park or on a road trip.  It can consist of a logbook only, or you may find a treasure inside (you can take one, but be sure to leave one too in that case).  All you need is a gps device such as on a phone.  Learn how to get started and see if you can find a geocache in or near the library!  Join us on Thursday, August 1
