Monday June 29– SUMMER READING BEGINS!
Sign up and log into ReadSquared (CLICK HERE to SIGN UP) to start recording your reading times! (Kids 1-17). PLEASE MAKE SURE WHEN YOU SIGN UP (KIDS), YOU CLICK “MYSELF” WHEN YOU REGISTER. IF YOU DO “MYSELF AND CHILDREN”, IT WILL NOT WORK. If you do not have access to the internet, please call the library at 315-684-9130 and leave a message and we will get you a form to complete and we will input your information for you! (Trust us though, if you have internet access there is so much more FUN online earning badges, playing games etc, than our boring old form!)

Monday June 29-Monday July 6– Imagine Your Story No Contact Summer Reading Mural
What’s your story? What have you been up to? If you could go or do anything where/what would you visualize it would be? Using your imagination, create a drawing/painting etc, (no bigger than a normal sheet of paper) for our display! Drop off during our no contact pickup times, or place in an envelope and mail it to us or scan in to your computer and email to morrisville@midyork.org! We will display all these great “stories” in our big circle window, main entrance door/window for all to see from July 10-August 28, 2020! (All will need to lay flat in the window so please be cautious as to what artistic means you use.)
