Connect Your Summer Kick Off Party

Kick off the summer in style by joining us for the Connect Your Summer reading program kick off party! We have great activities planned including a photo op spot, wheel of fun, custom CPL coloring sheets and more. Pick up a CYS yard sign*, place in your yard for all to see and possibly get a drop-in visit from the CYS prize patrol. We will unveil our Giant Spirograph outside at 11:00AM and 2:00PM. And, most importantly, we will have a CYS sign up station to join the program and ask any and all questions you may have about our exciting and busy summer here at the library. 

* All giveaways and snacks available while supplies last.
