We hope that you, your family, and your friends visit the library during the summer months. Check out books, movies, and music, attend a face-to-face program, use a computer or free WIFI, or even sit quietly and read. This summer, our theme is Read Beyond the Beaten Path! The broad motif of “Summer Camp at the Library” can encompass a world of different summer experiences. As you are hiking, enjoying time with family around a campfire, sharing stories, or enjoying nature, feel free to include books in your special time. Many children fell behind during the coronavirus pandemic; let’s all help the children in our lives and our community get caught up and prevent the summer slide. All ages are encouraged to register and participate in the Summer Reading Program. Your participation will make you eligible for prizes and raffles throughout the summer. To get started, visit us at euclidlibrary.org. Your participation will make you eligible for prizes and raffles throughout the summer.
