It's Finally Summer! YAY!

“The library in summer is the most wonderful thing because there you get books on any subject and read them each for only as long as they hold your interest, abandoning any that don't, halfway or a quarter of the way through if you like, and store up all that knowledge in the happy corners of your mind for your own self and not to show off how much you know or spit it back at your teacher on a test paper.”
― Polly Horvath,
My One Hundred Adventures

We actually do have cookies here.  They're Girl Scout cookies, so they aren't free.  We've got lots of other stuff that you can take home with you for free if you have a library card.

We've also got lots of stuff going on at the library:
