Last Week of Summer Reading and Boredom Busters

Can you believe July is almost over? The last day to turn in your Summer Reading Log is THIS SUNDAY, JULY 31. Prize winners will be notified the first week of August.
 Did you know that more than 500 kids have signed up for Summer Reading? If everyone completes their Summer Reading, Roselle's kids will have read 360,000 minutes this summer. That's amazing!

Coming in August we will have two weeks of Grandparents Got Game, on Wednesday, August 3 and Wednesday, August 10. Bring your grandparent or grandfriend to the library for an afternoon of games, crafts, and snacks!
