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.
