Thank you to everyone who participated in our extremely successful summer reading program. We had more than 1,000 kids and teens signed up this year. We also had around 250 adults participate in our program. We want to thank everyone who came to all of our programs this summer, including the very successful Teddy Bear Sleep-Over and End of the year Summer Read Pool Party.
The library is starting to gear up for fall. We will not be having story times during the month of August to give us a chance to plan for the fall programming. Please watch our website or Facebook for more information. Additionally, starting in September we will be adding library information into the city’s Norwalk Notes electronic newsletter. If you do not already receive that, please sign up on the city’s web page.
