Hey Prairie Pointers - here's your chance to build your summer reading list based on the recommendations of your peers. Come by the library in the next few weeks and rate & review books that you have read recently. The last week of school you can build your own summer reading list from the recommendations you find on our DIY Summer Reading List boards.
The Buy One - Get One Book Fair will be going on all week in the library. We will be open from 7:30 AM - 3:30 PM everyday. There are lots of good and affordable books so come by to stock up for summer reading.
