Summer Reading Program 

June 25-September 7

Summer is coming and with it our Summer Reading Program. This year the statewide program's theme is "Libraries Rock" and is based on a celebration of music. We have 7 themed fun weeks planned, each with a musical element. We will encourage reading with fun BINGO sheets and prizes based on the weekly theme. The BINGO sheet is designed to get kids reading every day. Each option invites children to read, or be read to, the books THEY WANT. There are no required titles and no set amount of time. Every child who finishes 5 of the 7 weeks of reading will receive a Summer Reading Star Lawn Sign to proudly display around town.  


Sleepy Hollow Halloween Show
Friday October 19 @ 6:30pm

The Sleepy Hollow Halloween Show weaves the characters from Washington Irving's classic story into a new and exciting tale. Designed to be spooky (but not scary), the show begins where the original story leaves off. Actress Kitty Jones involves the audience in a quest to find out who is the Headless Horseman.

This program is sponsored by our Friends as part of our 50th Anniversary celebration.
