The Library will have Summer Reading Logs available starting Monday, June 21. They will be located at the Youth desk in the library with the logo Summer Reading Logs attached to the bin they will be in. They will be set up according to grade level. Once a child has picked out their reading log they may then go to the Help desk to pick up one reading bag with a ‘Tails and Tales’ logo on it. These bags are for children PreK and up. Inside the bag will be summer program related ‘goodies’. We will have more information on summer programs soon. They will begin after the first week in July.
