GET CAUGHT READING OR VISITING A LIBRARY DURING SUMMER 2015!!!

Do you like to read with someone special—a friend, grandparent, or favorite pet? Is your cozy reading spot inside or outside? Share your summer reading scene with us.
Teens and adults are invited to enter our digital photo contest, "Caught Reading" - featuring digital photos of you, a friend, or a family member reading!
Email your submission to Mrs. Schatz or bring it by the library during the first week of school. All entries will be displayed in the library unless you tell Mrs. Schatz otherwise.
Include photographer's name, where the picture was taken, and if the reading material can not be read, please include title.
To be accepted, content must be G rated.

Reminder to check your favorite vendor, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble or others, to keep up with all of the new releases this summer and this fall. Think of all the trilogies that you have started! Email Mrs. Schatz your discoveries! She will try to have as many as possible waiting for you.
