Boy, what a sizzling summer we've had! I hope you've been enjoying your reading, not to mention all the special events we've had this year...the performers, the Fun Faire, the Touch-a-Truck... If you missed seeing the L. L. Bean Bootmobile, you may get another chance within a year or two. Keith and A.J. really enjoyed spendng time with us and showing off their cool ride. And the Bedford firefighters, police and public works crew also loved being part of the show & tell...they were just awesome!
As things begin to wind down, the Craft Lab will be closing up shop on the afternoon of Friday, August 1st. The Book Reporting Lab will remain open one more week, ending August 8th, the day of our final event of the season. However, keep on reading! You have until the end of August to turn in your reading log and collect your final prize. By so doing, you will ensure that you will receive a Summer Reading Certificate, either at school in the fall, or right at the Children's Desk.
All good things must come to an end, and now we're looking forward to the Grand Finale. Steve Blunt & Co. will be performing for us in the Town Gazebo, weather permitting. Following the concert, we invite you to come back into the library for refreshments and prizes. The winners of the Writing & Illustrating Contest will receive their awards, and there will be a special drawing for prizes for those students who used the registration cards given out at school to sign up for the Summer Reading Program. Then we'll top it all off with door prize drawings...these are generous gift certificates donated by local merchants, especially for this occasion. But wait! One more thing...before you leave, you will be able to choose free books to take home...a win-win-win!
