Summer reading program begins


New bench and table outside the library entrance Thanks to the Blanche Bradley Memorial Library Foundation, there is now a weatherproof bench and table next to the library entrance. People who want to use the library's 24/7 wi-fi, have a comfortable place to sit with their devices. Librarian Carol Blix reminds patrons that mobile hotspots and laptop computers are available for patrons in good standing to check out for a three-week period. The library also offers two Washington Discover Passes for checkout that can be used at state parks and recreation areas. Photo courtesy of Carol Blix.
