“Dig Into Reading” is in full swing at the library. Don’t forget to sign up for the reading program. Participants who sign up will get prizes for reading as they go through the program and will receive a sports bag if they finish the reading log. Those who finish the reading log will also get their names in a drawing for a bicycle.

Weekly activities include:

Teen activity, 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Lego Club, 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Pre-school story time, 10:30 a.m. Thursday.

Craft activities for elementary-age kids, 2 p.m. Thursday.
