I just want to remind everyone that registration for the Summer Reading Program begins TODAY, on June 10. Stop in at the library when you can so that you can start tracking your reading and earning prizes as soon as possible!

I don't know about you, but I had a great time at today's Dig In, Read In event! Big thanks to everyone who attended. As promised, here is the recipe for the dirt cake that we ate:


2 (20 oz.) pkgs. Oreo cookies
1/2 stick butter
1 (8 oz.) cream cheese
1 c. powdered sugar
3 1/2 c. milk
2 sm. French vanilla instant pudding boxes
1 (12 oz.) Cool Whip

Cream the butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar together in a bowl, and then set aside.

In another LARGE bowl, mix pudding together with the milk, add the Cool Whip to pudding mixture. (Don’t follow the directions on the pudding, just use the 3 1/2 cups of milk). Then blend in with the cream cheese mixture.

To crush the Oreos, put the packages of Oreos in a large Ziploc bag. Then, in case of a tear in the bag, just put your Ziploc bag inside another large Ziploc bag for protection, then crush.

Then, in a large bowl, layer the cream and the Oreos. Don’t be afraid to go heavy on the cream or else you will have a lot left over. Likewise, use just a thin layer of the Oreos. Start with the Oreos on the bottom of the bowl, then end with Oreos to top it off.

Chill for at least an hour before serving. Top with gummy worms or other goodies, if desired.

Hello, everyone! Just a few reminders:

1) This week's event is the Super Smash Bros. Brawl tournament! Top finishers will earn a few prizes, a trophy, and massive bragging rights. Registration closes when the library closes on Wednesday, so sign up ASAP if you want to participate!

2) There are only two weeks remaining the Summer Reading Program. It's coming fast! Don't forget to visit the library before August 3 so that we can give you all of the prizes you've earned over the summer. We'll be drawing names for the raffle on August 5.

Don't forget that this week is the last week of the Teen Summer Reading Program! You have until the library closes at 1:30 pm on Saturday, August 3 to check in with your reading booklets and get your prizes. Winners for the raffles will be chosen on August 5. Don't delay! If you have been reading this summer - even if it's just a little bit - be sure to visit the library so that we can reward you for your efforts.

The 2013 Teen Summer Reading Program is officially complete! We selected winner for the raffle yesterday. If you got a phone call from us telling you that you won a prize, come to the library to pick it up as soon as you are able.

This summer has been a resounding success thanks to your enthusiasm. We set records for the number of teens participating in the program, the number of pages read, and the number of teens who attended programs. here are a few interesting statistics to show you just how busy the library was this summer:

Total number of teens who signed up for the reading program: 186 (that’s 24% more than last year!)

Total number of teens who checked in at least once with either reading booklet: 93 (that’s 50% - not bad!)

Total number of reading challenges completed from your green reading booklets: 482 (that’s 16% more than last year!)

Estimated number of pages read by teens: 241,000 (wow!)

Total number of extra challenges completed from your orange booklets: 389 (awesome!)

Total attendance at in-library teen programs: 121 (that’s a whopping 210% more than last year!)

Total participation in passive programs, such as posting to the Goodreads.com group or writing book reviews: 86

Great job, everyone!
