Planning on homeschooling this year? Check out this webinar on August 20 about preparing for homeschooling offered by Pearl River Library. 

Summer Reading has begun!

June 22- August 15

Join us for a Virtual Summer of Fun!  We can’t be in the building this summer, so we’re bringing the crafts, music, magic, animals and more to you!  Check out our summer programs for kids and register through our online calendar of events. 

“Imagine Your Story” is the 2020 Summer Reading Club theme.  We’ll be featuring fantasy, fairy tales, adventures and heroes, but you can imagine your own story to be anything you’d like – so read anything that interests you!  We’ll be using an online reporting system this year, so you can log your books from home.  Easily log your activity using the READsquared app. The app is free for both Android and iOS mobile devices and can be found in the App store for iPhone/iPad or Google Play.  Earn badges and automatically get entered for prize drawings. 

We hope you’ll be reading all summer long. You can complete challenges, enter drawings and win prizes . You can also earn virtual badges for completing reading challenge levels.  The more you log in on your Readsquared account, the more chances you’ll have to win!
