You can cool off this summer by playing water games and compete for prizes. From water balloon tossin’ to watermelon seed-spittin’ this is possibly the messiest, wettest fun you’ll have all summer.

It is part of the Teen Summer Reading Program that is in full force, so sign up, keep reading, and keep logging in those hours.  Free refreshments will be available while supplies last. Continue the learning by checking out books, reviewing online databases, and searching the Internet - all for free at your local public library.
