Imagine Your Story Summer Reading 2020

The Summer Reading Program, Imagine Your Story, is happening now! Grab a reading log from the library for those 18 years old and younger, read 20 books and earn a prize!!

Due to Covid-19, the actual programs/events will look a little different this year. We are going virtual! Check out the videos below!


Have you ever wanted to learn how to care for magical creatures? Now you can! Watch the video below from The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen.

The Nature Foundation at Wintergreen is located in Roseland, VA and is there to serve as a center for research and education. Kathie Driscoll has come to the library for the summer reading program several years in a row and has put together creative programs to match the theme of each summer!

If you get really interested in this, we have books that will give you more information! Newt Scamander’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, all the Harry Potter books, and Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, just to name a few!
