Time is Running Out on Summer Reading...

It's been a crazy summer, with flooded basements, power outages, downed trees and generally extreme weather. One thing has remained consistent - our Summer Reading Program has been a hit! Time is running out though. You've only got until September 3rd to finish reading and pick up your final prize: a beautiful book bag! And even though you've finished your six books you shouldn't stop recording books that you read, because each book beyond the initial six will get you an extra free movie rental per book! Thanks to everyone who has participated and don't forget to get your books read!
