Thanks to those who participated in SummerQuest. We had a great summer here at the library, and enjoyed seeing so many friends here attending programs, checking out material, and stopping by to visit. All ages may continue to turn in their levels for prizes until Aug. 31, at which time raffle winners will be drawn and notified.
