Summer Reading Success

Summer Reading ended last weekend.   The hot summer months kept many of us indoors with a book in hand. 

Over one hundred adults participated in the program reading more than four hundred fifty books.

Fifty-four teens read 303 books.

Four hundred eighty kids read for 14,075 hours. 


The Annual Patron Survey (August 19- September 19, 2011)

Click here to take our annual survey.  It takes about ten minutes to complete the fifteen questions.  We use the information to direct services and programs in the coming year. You can also complete a paper survey at the circulation desk.  


Can you help?

With summer coming to an end, many of our marvelous helpers are heading back to school.  That means we are short-handed for shelving volunteers, especially on weekdays.  If you can commit just two hours a week, the library needs your help.

"If the book we are reading does not wake us, as with a fist hammering on our skulls, then why do we read it? Good God, we also would be happy if we had no books and such books that make us happy we could, if need be, write ourselves. What we must have are those books that come on us like ill fortune, like the death of one we love better than ourselves, like suicide. A book must be an ice axe to break the sea frozen inside us."

—Franz Kafka (1883-1924) Austrian writer, The Metamorphosis, The Trial
