seahorse with headphonesIt’s that time of year again! Our Summer Reading Program, Tails and Tales, will occur June 22 through August 10. To prepare, create an account with Beanstack by visiting Beanstack or clicking on the seahorse and registering for the Summer 2021: Tails and Tales for Teens challenge. This year, each book or activity that you log in Beanstack will translate into one entry for a monthly drawing. So, the more reading and program participation you log, the greater your chances of winning a prize! In the meantime, take a look at all of the programming scheduled for the summer and email jwright@cwmars.org to sign up for events you are interested in! I am looking forward to seeing you all! ~ Jessica
