After the winter we’ve had, the dog days of summer are something to look forward to – especially when we’re talking about the Library's 2014 Summer Reading Clubs, “PAWS to Read”!
 
This year marks a couple of new changes for the reading clubs, including the option to register online. Once you set up an account, you’ll be able to keep track of your progress online, too. Questions? Feel free to visit the Library's service desks in Children’s Services or Reader Services and one of the librarians will be happy get you registered.
