Thanks for Participating in “Tales and Tails”

Our 2021 Tales and Tails summer reading program has come to an end. Preschoolers through adults had a great time participating in programs including story times, ONE with Mrs. Vanschoyck, Service Dogs with Patty and Lion, and a safari program. This year at SRP celebration our Grand Prize Winners received one of the following: tickets to Kings Island, the Works, gift cards to Chloe & Co., Villa Pizza, Walmart, or Target. All participants who completed the program received coupons to Whit’s Custard (Johnstown), McDonalds, and the Ohio Renaissance Fair. We are very grateful to local businesses and presenters that support our summer reading program – which strives to encourage reading and learning for all ages. Be sure to tell our sponsors, “Thank You!” when visiting their business to redeem your coupon or pass.

If your child participated in the SRP and has not picked up their final treats, stop by the library before August 10th and get their goodies. Congratulations to all our SRP winners and thanks to all our patrons for attending our programs.

As the summer unofficially comes to an end and we prepare for the start of the 2021–22 school year with after school programs, and book clubs, remember, we are YOUR library, and we welcome you to visit us anytime during the year. Before you know it, summer of 2022 will be here.
