The theme of this year’s national Summer Reading Challenge at public libraries is “Imagine Your Story” – a celebration of fantasy, mythology, and fairy tales.
The Haddonfield Public Library suggests that this summer is the perfect year to visit a land far, far away.
The fun will begin on Monday, July 6. The library will be using Beanstack to manage the challenge, and is offering “lots of great prizes.”
For more information and to sign up, visit Beanstack HERE.
