Dig Into Reading @ Your Library
The summer reading theme this year is Dig Into Reading. We’ve replaced the regular table with a NILO table so that there can be lots of digging and building sites on it throughout the summer. We have many other events planned to make your summer fun and book filled. The Summer Reading Program is co-sponsored by Hills Bank and Trust.

Cole Library and Mount Vernon Bank present Monday Morning Movies. This popular program will begin on Monday, June 3 at 10 a.m. Each person attending will get a bag of popcorn and a drink. We will also be drawing for a book at each movie. Movies for June are:

Story Time continues all summer long on Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Themes will be related to the summer reading program and will include Construction, Digging Animals, Gardening, and Worms.
