Many thanks to the more than 80 sponsors and 4,868 participants in the "Paws to Read," Summer Reading Program.

The program is now over, and there are two things we would like to ask of you:

Please take down your Champion Yard Sign and send us a photo

We would love to receive a photo of you with your sign before you take it down. Please send photos to See above photo of Kiera & Tessa Pauly with their yard sign.

Feel free to keep your Champion Yard Sign as a souvenir of the program. We may use signs for future promotions. If you don't want to store your sign, you may bring it back to the Library.
