Summer Reading wrap-up
Where did the summer go? One
minute we’re chilling out on the Green listening to some great music
by GB-Five at our Summer Reading
kick-off, and the next thing we
know, we’re near the end of August!
Just a reminder, our Summer Reading challenge wraps up Saturday, Aug. 26, so be sure to log
your books, complete challenge
activities and get raffle tickets by
then. Prizes can picked up until Sept. 8 and raffle prizes for the adult program will be drawn Monday, Aug. 28, with winners notified by e-mail. All of our great
Summer Reading prizes have been
generously provided by the Friends
of the Library. Visit www.bethlehempubliclibrary.org to
access your summer reading account.
As our All Together Now Summer Reading challenge draws to a close, we’ll be celebrating by transforming the library into an 18-hole miniature golf course Saturday, Aug. 26, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Everyone is welcome, but please note that traditional library services will be limited during the event. Joining us at noon that day will be SouthPaw, the Valley Cats mascot. Face painting will be available from 10 a.m.-noon and 1-3 p.m. Stick around and enjoy some ice cream at 3 p.m., courtesy
of the Friends and Stewarts Shops.
This free event is co-hosted by the Friends of Bethlehem Public Library.
