Special “Summer Reading” Story Time!!

In honor of the 2018 Summer Reading Program, “Libraries Rock,” we will hold a special Story Time on Thursday, July 19th at 11:30 am. We will read music-based stories, and sing while the kids get to play with musical instruments. Finally, we will craft our own musical instrument for the children to take home. Kids age 2-10 are welcome and must be accompanied by a favorite adult.

“Libraries Rock” Summer Reading Challenge

Stop in to Fairview Library to pick up a pamphlet about the 2018 Summer Reading Challenge sponsored by Assemblyman Christopher Tague at the circulation desk. It includes a calendar for reading progress to be marked down on, which would then be sent to Assemblyman Christopher Tague’s office after the child has marked off 40 days or more. The child will be awarded a New York State Excellence in Reading certificate. Who knows what all that reading will inspire in your child? Happy reading!

On July 7th from 9am-3pm, Fairview Library will be holding a book sale in our community room! We have a huge assortment of books along with some dvd’s, video games, audiobooks, etc. There’s something for everyone! Every purchase helps benefit your local library.
