Dear Kids and Parents of Salisbury,

Happy Summer! Time for relaxing, playing outside, camping, swimming, fishing, sleeping late, and reading. Yes!!! Reading!!! Reading during the summer is the best way to help kids to maintain reading skills they learned during the school year. It's also a wonderful way to pass a rainy day inside or a sunny day on the grass.

The Salisbury Free Public Library in the Old Town Hall on Maple St. is open all summer long. On Tuesdays we have special time just for kids from 2:30-4:00, but you and your kids are welcome any time!

The Summer Reading Program at our library has a goal of getting each and every kid in Salisbury to read two books over the summer. Please bring your child in any time from now until the end of summer to sign up and get a reading log. A great time to register is on June 16 at 2:30 when we're having a book swap at the library! Bring in one or two books that your kids have read and want to trade for other books. While you're there, enjoy a treat and sign up for summer reading, and for a library card if you don't already have one. All summer readers will be invited to our End Of Summer party on August 25 at 2:30 and will receive a small prize for participation. Also, for each book you read, your name will go into a raffle for some bigger prizes from local businesses, so read a lot and give yourself more chances to win!
