The McConnell Summer Reading Program is heating up, so what better way to cool down than with a sweet treat?  On Thursday, 31 May from 6 – 7:30 p.m., meet us at the Dole Center Ballroom for the Summer Reading Program Kick-Off 50’s Sock Hop! Wear your best ’50s gear and enjoy the “Oldies” music playing while you register for the Summer Reading Program. We’ll be serving up Root Beer Floats!  We’ll have free activities for participants, and you can use this opportunity to sign up for the 2018 Summer Reading Program!
