Summer Reading

 

To celebrate all of your hard work, Edith B. Ford Memorial Library is throwing an end of Summer Reading Finale Party! On Saturday, July 31, beginning at noon until 2 pm. All ages are invited to join.  
 
For those who entered the summer reading raffle back in June, we will be drawing for both the teen and adults prizes. If you haven’t entered the raffle yet, you have until July 30th to do so, just show a staff member your summer reading timecard. You must be in attendance at the finale to collect the prize, otherwise it will be forfeited and another name will be called.  
 
Teens (13 to 18) have the chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card, while the Adult (18+) prize is two $25 vouchers to Silo Food Truck.
 
Between 12 – 1 pm, Girl Scouts will be hosting an arts and crafts table for kids. We will also have a squirt gun tie dye station where kids and teens can squirt dye their own shirts!  
 
Live music from local father and son duo, House of Cards, from 1 – 2 pm.

Free pizza and snack options available for all ages!!
