(Regular admission is now $25 for Adults and $18 for Children (3-12) and Senior Citizens) You MUST have your library card to get the tickets. The tickets do not expire. 

UNMASK THE BOOK IN THE JAR
To encourage our Summer Readers who enjoy a mystery!!
Come to the library and take a guess at the title of a cut up book in a clear jar. Teens and Adults can win a copy of the title along with two water cannons to enjoy with a friend on a hot summer day.
Children can try to guess the title or character in a cut up picture book in a jar. Children with the correct answer can win a piece of candy at the front desk on the way out of the library.

In conjunction with the Summer Reading Club we will be creating a “sports theme” photo booth for fun. If you have any sports related props, clothing etc. that we may borrow see Miss Liz.
