Thank You for Reading with Us This Summer!

You Read 5,000 HoursSummer Reading 2014 was a huge success! Over 850 children signed up this year. Together, you read 5,413 hours in June and July. You also donated over 200 books to the Fairview Child and Family Center in Hillsborough. Thank you for helping us share a love of reading throughout the community!

Adults and teens were also busy reading this summer- reading and rating over 300 books in June and July, submitting nearly 150 thoughtful book reviews, and recommending over 200 4-star and 5-star titles. Our local teens tried defying gravity though our first ever Egg Drop Challenge.

A special thanks to the Friends of the Library for their generous donation of two science kits and two Kindle Fires as summer reading prizes.

We hope you enjoyed our Summer Reading as much as we did. Check out our Events Calendar for upcoming activities and events.

Thanks for making the 2014 Kick-off so great everybody! Here's some photos from the big event:
