Reading Nook by Kirsten Pierce

We hope everyone is keeping track of all the books they’re reading. We will collect everyone’s reading logs by August 31st and announce our grand prize winners September 1st. There are some really great prizes this year so make sure you are reading!

            Swaney Memorial Library is so happy to announce that we will offer two Read With Rover programs in August. Join us at the library at 11 a.m. Saturday, August 14th or at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, August 25th, and spend an hour reading to the wonderful therapy dogs from Happy Trails Training. Not only is it fun, it’ll help your child’s reading skills. Please call 304-564-3471 to register. This program is free and open to all ages.

Join us for a fun filled day at Hogwarts from 4 to 6 p.m. on Wednesday, September 1st. Get sorted into houses picked by the sorting hat, dine with your house in the great hall, play quidditch, search for horcruxes, learn potions, and make your very own wands. This program is $5 and is open for all ages.
