Lots of great events and activities planned for teens!

Use the online program at www.wrl.org/beanstack to track your reading (they also offer a great app for both Android and Apple devices), or pick up a paper form at either library or on the Mobile Library Services vehicles.
First date to turn in your log is June 18. For every four books you’ll win a scratch-off card offering a chance to win a unique pint glass, a WRL tote bag, or gift certificates for local businesses.
