Trivia Saturday

Every week of Summer Reading kids can answer literary trivia questions. The best part is we’ll put the books with the answers on a special book cart in the Children’s Section.

New sheets each Saturday of Summer Reading.

Completed trivia sheets earn you an extra ticket for a chance at prizes.

And if you like one of the books you can put it on hold and take it home the following week.

Summer Reading Showdown

The Summer Reading Showdown is fun way for you to show your support for the library. Your favorite Disney heroes and villains will be battling all summer starting in June.

Votes are cast by placing money into the bottles representing the characters of your choice. The two characters in each bracket with the least amount of money are eliminated every Saturday until the winners of each bracket face off on the final week.

All proceeds go to the library.
