The 2013 Summer Reading Program was our most successful program yet with more than 1,100 participants in our youth reading program and more than 280 participants in our adult program.
We want to thank everyone who participated in our Summer Reading Program and special events. An invaluable piece for the success of the Summer Reading Program includes all the staff, volunteers and donors who gave their time, talent, money and smiles to this effort. We also wish to say a big thank you to more than 70 youth volunteers who helped with summer reading. This is not a library project, but a community-wide project. As we move forward into the new school year, we hope to expand collaborations between the library and the community, so we would love your ideas and input. We are your library, so help us create programming to meet your needs.
The library is starting to gear up for a fall. Storytimes will not be offered in August, but will resume Sept. 4. Watch for more information via our electronic-newsletter, website or Facebook page.
Here is a sneak peak at some of the fall programs offered at the Norwalk Library.

• K-first grade book club: Meets the second Wednesday of each month, 2 – 2:45 p.m.
• Second – third grade book club: Meets the third Wednesday of each month, 2 – 2:45 p.m.

• Novel Year Book Club: Award-winning books, movies and an extension activity comprise this bi-monthly, three-session book club.
Sampler Book Club: This new club tastes a genre, such as suspense and comes together to discuss the selected text. Participants select one more book in that genre and talk across the books later in the month. Ideas, interests and recommendations are exciting.
Learn @ Your Library: Watch the calendar for Saturday morning computer classes, evening presentations on special topics and special events, such as exhibits or performances.Norwalk Easter Library
