YOUTH SERVICES REPORT

September 2019

There is very little to report for the month of August.  I took a couple of weeks off after the summer reading program.  I have spent time organizing both the juvenile chapter books and the young adult books due to new books soon to be received.  I am preparing curriculum for the September and October months of story time.  The weekly story time will resume after Labor Day.  I also have decorated the display case and the bulletin board.  Submitted by Maury Reynolds
