---- — ATKINSON — Registration for all summer reading programs (preschool), (elementary), and (t/weens—middle/high school) begins on Mon., June 17. 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. We take care not to over-purchase for our events. 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 because some other child may be on a waiting list for an event and that spot in reality is being taken 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 17. Registration for the program as a whole is ongoing until July 26; however, the sooner you begin the sooner you child can begin to win prizes.

We will be closed Memorial Day weekend (Sat., May 25 through Mon., May 27.) Two day loan items checked out on Thurs., May 23 will not be due back until May 28. Take advantage of the extension and have a safe and happy holiday weekend.
