Thanks to Target

Many of our children's programs are sponsored by Target this summer.

The Cooperative received a grant on behalf of the libraries for sponsoring performers for summer programs. You'll see their sponsorship on flyers about the programs and on our Library Events page.

Summer programs are designed for school age children. We want to keep children reading during the summer so their reading skills are maintained and they are ready to learn when school starts.
