Celebrate your summer reading accomplishments with some silly and fun book
related track events.  Healthy snacks and ice water will be provided.  If
you finish your independent reading challenge game board beforehand, you can
bring it with you to the party to or stop by the library any time to claim
your prizes!  In the event of bad weather we will be at the Keith Anderson
building, please call the library to confirm.
