Important Messages
Get Creative and Read this summer at Shaker Library!

Sign up for the preschool (birth to age 5) summer reading program and keep track of a child's time spent reading or listening to books. (All reading time must be logged online or reported to library staff by 9 pm August 6. The last day to pick up prizes is August 23.)

Prizes are awarded after reading hours are logged at 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 hours.

Don't forget to help us celebrate the end of our art-themed summer reading program. Make cool art projects, vote on your favorite painting in the art show, spin the Wheel of Artists, play Masterpiece Memory, and more! Light refreshments will be served. This is a family event, for children with adult caregivers and is being held at both the Main Library and Woods Branch on Aug. 6, 2014 from 7pm - 8pm.
