Friday Flicks: How to Train Your Dragon 2:00 PM
Friday Flicks: How to Train Your Dragon
Join us as we watch the movie How to Train Your Dragon. Hiccup is a Viking teenager who aspires to hunt dragons, but doesn't exactly fit in with his tribe's longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. His world gets turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view. After you watch the movie stay to make a dragon craft. Sponsored by The Friends of the Library.

Remember to register for summer book clubs!

Did you know summer is one of the busiest times of the year for the children’s department? While some people think it would be a quiet time with families on vacation, it is instead our busiest season.  Programs are built around all age groups to keep everyone reading during the school break.  Children who do not read over the summer vacation lose approximately two months of reading skills, putting them behind their peers as the school year starts again in September.  By offering a variety of events at the library we hope to keep that loss in check!  Bringing children into the library is important to reading retention because a child is more likely to read a book he or she has chosen on their own.  So even if they choose not to participate in a library program like book club or pajama story time, bringing them into the library to choose their own books will help them keep their reading skills from slipping and keep them on target for going back to school.

Hattie and HudsonHattie and Hudson
by Chris Van Dusen
It's a summer day so beautiful and peaceful that Hattie, paddling in her canoe in the middle of a lake, can't help but sing.  In the deep water below, a creature is lurking.  He's huge and green, with a long, long neck and he rarely leaves his lair.  But on this day, he hears something sweet and inviting.  He hears a song.  What happens when the creature rises to the surface is nothing short of magical.  Can a young girl and an enormous lake monster bcome friends?
