Be Creative @ EHFPL!

Mark your calendars! Summer is finally here and so is Summer Reading @ EHFPL! The theme this year is "Be Creative @ Your Library!" Join us for a summer full of creative projects and programs.

This year, instead of weekly prizes, each child can look forward to a grab bag of prizes to be awarded during the last week of the summer reading program!

Don't forget to enter our annual drawing for extra special prizes when you check out three books from our shelves each week!
