This year's raffles include giftcards for:  iTunes, Dunkin Donuts, Orange Leaf, Gamestop, Michael's, Cinemagic, and Toadstool Books.  A variety of programs will be offered throughout the summer---make sure to sign up!  Miss Jane and Miss Sarah are once  challenging our teens to read 350 books--we know you can do it!




All summer long, weekly crafts will be offered in the Young Adult area for our “crafty” teens---both girls and boys!---make sure to try them all !!
