Parents

Please visit this site often as I will make every effort to keep you up to date with the ongoing events in the library.  Library Volunteer calendars will be stored here for you, as well.  Most importantly, I will post and update web sites I believe will support you in your efforts to encourage reading in your home.

If you find sites you would like to suggest, please feel free to email me using the Contact Me link at the bottom of this page.

I hope you find this page to be of value to you and your child.

Sincerely,

Bev Bjorklund
