Summer story times are a great way to get out of the Florida heat.
Three to five year olds meet on Tuesdays in July at 10 a.m. and feature stories, finger plays, music and films. Six to eight year olds meet on Tuesdays in July at 3 p.m. and feature stories, music, games, crafts and films.
Our Super Summer Show this week will require you to walk outside the library.

We have been working with Polk Reads to acquire tutors to help Bartow adults improve their reading skills. If you or someone you know could use this help and would like more information, contact Roxann here at the library. Also, if you are interested in becoming a volunteer tutor, we welcome your interest and can definitely use you.
