Thanks for a great summer!

Thanks to all our library patrons who participated in the Summer Reading Club this year!  We had a great summer filled with fun events and, of course, lots and lots of reading. This year we had the highest number of readers we’ve ever had registered in our Summer Reading Club.

Thanks also to the following businesses and organizations for their generous contributions:

  • Allegany Arts Council
  • Anchor Homes
  • Baltimore Orioles
  • College Savings Plan of Maryland
  • Kohls
  • Maryland Science Center
  • Queen City Creamery
  • Taco Bell
  • Western Maryland Regional Library

Summer Reading Club may be over, but you can still have a blast and read every day!  Thanks for a great summer!  We look forward to doing it all again next year and keep reading!
