WHO’S HIDING AROUND TOWN THIS YEAR?!?!?
Meet Whittier Beaver! Our busy, building friend will be hiding around town in various businesses from June 12th – August 8th. He is visible from the outside of the windows and will move to a new place each week (on Tuesday). If you spot him, come back to the library that week and let us know for a chance to entered into a raffle for cool local prizes!
Math is just as important as reading to keep learning over the summer!
When you sign up for summer reading everyone gets a constellation chart to fill out with stars for every math problem you do…check out the Bedtime Math website or download the app to get a daily math problem that is good for all ages!
