So many ways to read a book

I am visiting the Elementary Schools to tell the kids about Summer Reading Club and the Activities at the libraries.
I am finding out so many of the kids have E Readers and other ways to download and read books! I am impressed.
For FREE books to download go to click on E Library and download the 3M Cloud.
So many ways to read books - so many great titles-

New Flag

Thank you to Joan Stitz and family for our new flag. I didn't realize how faded the old flag was.
