Summer Reading Program
For YAs Entering Grades 6-12
This year's theme is "Beneath the Surface". Read for fun and explore what lurks below the sea, beneath the surface of history and alternative popular culture. Register starting Tuesday, June 11th and you'll get a summer reading information packet. Receive a small prize when you hand in your first review. Review 3 books and you'll be invited to our Summer Reading Party on August 12th. Look for further details in June about "Beneath the Surface" and other summer events.

For YA's entering Grades 6-12
Join us for lively discussions which explore Beneath the Surface themes solving a mystery and refuting stereotypes. We'll read aloud, share trivia, and enjoy refreshments.
In an upstate New York apple community, high school reporter Hildy Biddle investigates a series of strange occurrences at a house rumored to be haunted. This is a fast paced mystery with many themes which lurk beneath the surface of a placid farming community.
Okay For Now
Doug Swieteck is a 14 year old who just moved to a new town, with no friends, a difficult father and a louse for an older brother. All odds are stacked against him until he finds an ally in Lil Spicer. Together, they find a safe haven in the local library, inspiration in learning about John Audubon's birds and a hilarious adventure on a Broadway stage.
