We have LOTS of activities!!

The Paige Memorial Library Summer Reading program begins NOW!

Build a Better You!

Stop in to register and pick up your packet which includes the calendar of events, a log in sheet to keep track of your reading, and a special bingo card.  There are even packets for listeners, those non-readers who love to look at illustrations and to listen.  Remember, that is how we learn to love books and develop imagination.

Each time you log in, you will receive a little prize and enter a drawing for a bigger prize at the end of the summer.

We have lots of great books to read, activities to explore and, at the end, there will be a Family Fun Event with ice cream to build your own sundae .

Come explore the world and you at Paige Library.

  We are trying to reach out to

Not everyone can check our Webpage or Facebook regularly.  Not everyone gets the local newspapers.  Our plan is to create an email list so that we can share news of special programs or events.

If you would like to be on our special email list for notification of upcoming events, please let us know.
