Reading Buddies
The library matches volunteers, ages 13-adult, with elementary school children to read together for one hour each week at the library. For more information, call or stop into the Weaver Library (434-2453).

$$$ Read Down Your Fines $$$
Kids 16 and younger can “pay” their overdue fines by reading in the library. Just tell a librarian before you start reading, and when you finish reading, and we will waive $1 for every 30 minutes of reading.
