County Free Library's Reading Program
Certain Dates on Wednesday: The library hours are open to adults, teens, and children. Youth will be encouraged to partake in the Library’s challenge to read five books over the course of the summer. Although the Library will only be here running the program on Wednesdays, the museum is encouraging students to come out any day of the week and take advantage of the facilities.
Thursday and Saturday: Funded by a grant from the D.O.V.E.S. Organization. The Program is free, and there is no limit to the number of students that may attend. The first eight attendees will receive a free gi. The program is designed to promote a healthy, active life style. Although the students will be learning the fundamentals of karate, there will be no contact or fighting.
