ATKINSON —Registration for all summer reading programs (preschool), (elementary), and (t/weens—middle/high school) begins Fri., June 6. Each year there is a bit of confusion regarding this process so we proactively start to explain the semantics now. To be included in the summer reading program, registration is required for all age groups. Individual events for various age groups will also require registration as the events have a maximum capacity, and food or craft supplies need to be purchased in advance. Please take note to register for the program as a whole, but also to register for each individual event that your child plans to attend.

We truly appreciate cancellations being called in or not ‘committing to too many’ because some other child may be on a waiting list or excluded and that spot in reality is being taken away in essence by someone not actually attending. More information regarding all the programs will be forthcoming, but definitely note that you may begin general registration on June 6. Registration for the program as a whole is ongoing, however, the earlier you sign-up the sooner you child can begin to win prizes.

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and The Timberlane Community Band is a featured highlight on our June calendar. Starting at 6:30 p.m. on June 19, there will be a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring our beautiful new library courtyard project. Come see the marvelous expansion, walkways, patio and performing area. Low voltage lighting will be part of the features to note as well as a sprinkler system. After the ribbon cutting, you’ll be delighted with music featuring the Timberlane Community Band TCB) who has received praises by those who have heard their previous library performances. The Timberlane Community Band consists of over forty musicians with principal conductor, Tony DiBartolomeo and assistant conductor, John Mainella.
