Did you participate in Summer Reading Club this year? Come by NWPL’s Main Branch (716 6th Avenue) any time we’re open to pick up your medal!

Even if you didn’t finish 7 weeks of reading this year, you can still get a medal. We have lots and we want to recognize the effort that everyone put in this year to participate even with the pandemic. We will continue to hand out medals until the end of September, while supplies last.

See you soon!
