Everyone has been busy reading and winning prizes! We have one month to go before Summer Reading is over, so you still have lots of time to join in.
Kids, please tell all your parents! Ohio Libraries are in big trouble - Governor Strickland is planning to reduce funding to our libraries - which may mean that our library won't be able to have all of the fun programs, great books and movies and more that we want to be able to lend to you this year. We only have until Thursday, June 25, so hurry and tell them to call or email their congressmen and representatives. The address to email them is on the front of the website. Thanks kids!

2nd Base - Orlando Hudson - 64 pts
Shortstop - Derek Jeter - 47 pts
3rd Base - Evan Longoria - 75 pts
Catcher - Victor Martinez - 60 pts
Outfield - Jason Bay - 72 pts
Kids! School's out and it's time to come join me at the Stow-Munroe Falls Public Library for our summer reading program! This year it is called "Reading and All That Jazz!" We will have lots of fun being creative at the library and using our imaginations. There are big programs every day, and lots of prizes to win for reading (or if you are a preschooler or baby - being read to). Come in starting June 15 to sign up.
On May 1, Miss Lydia donated 12 inches of her hair to Wigs for Kids - a special organization that provides wigs for children who have lost their hair permanently, usually because of a disease or burns from a fire. On the same day, Diana who works in the Adult department downstairs, donated 14" of her hair to another organization that does the same thing Locks of Love! If you would ever like to donate yours - here are the addresses:
