If you completed Summer Reading this year, don't forget to redeem your book certificate August 5th - August 12th in the Community Room. If you are going to be out of town or unable to make it to the library during that time, see a librarian to pick up your book early. Book certificates will not be redeemed after August 12th. If you haven't completed your reading yet, remember that August 12th is the last day to turn in your logs or claim any prizes.
As part of our Adult Summer Reading program, "Master the Art of Reading," participants can color the Mona Lisa painting in their own special way and turn it in for a chance to win an 8GB iPod Nano. Stop by the Adult Reference Desk to see all the amazing work. Feeling inspired? Well there is still plenty of time for you to show off your creativity as well - you have until 9pm, August 12th to submit your entry!
