Beginning on Jan. 2, come to the library to sign up for the BEAR program.
Be Excited About Reading is an annual program for ages preschool to 11. Just for signing up each child receives a polar bear finger puppet. And once the reading log is completed, each child gets a brand-new book. The program runs through February. Sign up soon.
