Think of Your Library
We're asking you for help. Our branches have all created displays centered around our 2013 Summer Reading Program themes, "Grow a Little Reader," "Dig Into Reading" and "Beneath the Surface." Help us choose the branch that did it the best! The branch with the most votes will get to display a trophy and, of course, have bragging rights until next summer.
We've disguised the branch names and will reveal the winner in June! Don't forget Summer Reading is June 8-July 20.
View the slide show below and then vote here.
