READ DOWN YOUR FINES
Kids 16 and younger can “pay” their overdue fines by reading in the library. Just tell a librarian when you start and finish reading, and we will waive $1 for every 30 minutes of reading.
The library matches volunteers, age 13-adult, with younger children to read together for one hour each week at the library. Call the Weaver Library (434-2453) for more information.
VIDEO BOOK REVIEWS
Kids in grades K-5, would you like to recommend good books to other kids? Contact Children’s Librarian Pam Schwieger at 434-2453 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment to record your review. We will post your review on the library’s website.
