Our Choo Choo Choose Reading train is pulling into Kids' World again after chugging down the July 4 parade route. We invite you to come in to see it and take a picture next to it while holding your favorite book. Be sure to stop by the summer reading desk first and pick up your very own conductor hat to wear in the photo. Then post your photo to the the library’s Facebook page, and you will be entered into a drawing to win prizes. All aboard! Stop on by before the train leaves.
