Adults and kids can win prizes for reading their favorite books this summer! Kids of all ages are welcome to participate in the Summer Reading program that rewards kids for time they spend reading. All they need to do is come in and fill out a summer reading log and earn fun prizes. Adults can enter to win a great beach bag filled with the hottest titles each time they check out books until August 9th.
The library has expanded services with a new digital collection website experience just for kids. The main MHLS Digital Download Collection now has a separate site to provide a safe and easy browsing experience for kids.
Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
A big thank you to the Patterson Rotary for awarding us the “Service Above Self” award and presenting us with a generous donation of $500 for the Summer Reading Program! Mrs. C and Miss Jenn will use the funds for the program which promotes reading for youth of all ages with fun activities, prizes, and performances all season long!
