NEWS AND EVENTS

Summer Reading!

The summer bookmobile schedule is now available!

Kids can sign up for the summer reading club anytime on or after June 9! This year’s theme is ‘Libraries Rock!’ — and we’ll also do some fun geology with ‘library rocks’! There are five special events throughout the summer – scroll down for details!

Throughout the summer, kids will get prizes from the treasure chest when they visit the bookmobile or library and check in to show progress toward their personal reading goal (or read-to-me goal). Special prizes will be given for attending special events, completing fun reading challenges, and for making progress toward the goal kids set for themselves!

Storytime @ The Library! Ms. Bonnie will be offering TWO fun storytimes at the Sawmill Road Library every Friday from June 15 – August 31. From 9:30-9:50am, she will offer stories especially for kids from birth to 3 years old. From 10-10:20am, a new storytime will focus on kids from 3-6 years old – stretching their reading skills! (Parents can decide which session to put their 3 year old children in!) All family members and friends of any age are welcome!

This year, middle schoolers can sign up for the Middle School Library Club and they will plan their own fun with club mentor, Professor Kali Fedor!

The only rule of summer reading club is you have to read for fun!!!

Come to these special events for extra fun for the whole family!

Our librarians carefully select books for the collection from sources like book reviews, library journals, and book-related websites, based on our relationships with our community of readers. The books are added to purchase lists on Amazon and ordered regularly. We have made our purchase lists public so you can request forthcoming books.

View the Traveling Library Purchase Lists

You can preview the lists on Amazon anytime. If you see a book you would like to request, simply send an email to info@cctlibrary.org with your name and the book you would like to read, or call 570-387-8782. We will notify you when your book is ready. It usually takes about one week from the time the book is ordered. For bestsellers which have not yet been published, you will be added to a waiting list for when it comes out, and it may take longer.
