NEW READERS CLUB

Are you a new reader? Are you up for a fun challenge? Then join the New Reader's Club! It's easy to do: just pick out a book you like to read, then practice, practice, practice, then read it aloud either to a librarian or--if you're shy--to our mascot, Poe! You'll get a certificate, and a sign will be posted to let everyone know that YOU are the newest reader at the library! YOU can do it!
