Thank You and What's Happening July 27-August 2



The "Read to the Rhythm" summer reading program wrapped up over the weekend with a finale carnival on Saturday.  Families had a great time playing games and winning prizes.  Special thanks goes to the staff and volunteers who helped make the carnival fabulous!

All in all, the Collinsville and Fairmont City Library Centers had over 700 adults, teens and children enroll in the reading program -- WOW!  Thank you to everyone who participated in the reading challenges or attended library events.  We hope you had as much fun as we did and we hope you'll join in again next year!

In the meantime, we always have great FREE events for all ages.  This week's programs are:
