Library News & Events 

**Great job to all the kids out there that are reading and keeping track of the minutes that they read!! Just a reminder that even when the library programming stops in a couple of weeks that doesn’t mean the program is over. You can keep reading and tracking your minutes until July 20. The last time to turn in your minutes is Friday, July 20 at 4:00pm. Winners will be notified the following week.


**A big THANK YOU to the many volunteers who made our Summer Reading Program a BIG success! For those that brought cookies and bars-thank you!! We are super proud of the kids for the amount of reading they have done. Great job and keep reading kids!!

Boyden Book Club will be meeting on Monday, July 16, at 7:00pm in the library. We will be reading the book “To Dance with the White Dog” by Terry Kay this month. Please let the library know if you need a copy of the book!

Movie Day! We will be showing a kid’s movie on Tuesday, July 24 at 2:00pm. Everyone is invited and popcorn will be provided! We encourage you to send a water bottle (with a lid) with your child.

Just a Reminder….Tween-Tween Summer Read is also happening at the Boyden Library. All kids 4 th grade-19 years of age can still read for fun and prizes. It’s simple. For each book you read from now until July 28 write the title and your name on a piece of paper and put it in the basket at the library. We will draw 2 winners at the end of July. Have fun reading!!

Summer Travel- Are you taking a road trip this summer? Keep in mind we have many online services for your reading enjoyment. Whether it be Tumblebooks (online animated books for kids) Zinio (online magazines) or Bridges (online e-books and audio books) we have you covered! See below!
