With Labor Day behind us and school starting up again, even though it's not yet official, the end of summer is here. We had a busy summer at the Mountlake Terrace Library. We marched in the Tour de Terrace Parade, had a booth at the National Night Out and offered Summer Reading Programs for all ages. "Catch the Reading Bug" was the theme and 240 children caught it and participated. We hosted weekly family programs with "critter" themes. Our last program was a special one starring Charlie Williams, the "noise guy" sponsored by the Friends of the Mountlake Terrace Library.

Did you attend any of our summer programs? If so, what did you think?
Teen and Adult Reading Programs were also offered. Throughout the Sno-Isle System, over 5000 reviews were posted online by teens. Congratulations to Ryan W. who won our Teen Summer Reading Grand Prize.
Adults read books and won weekly prizes.
Did you read any good books this summer? Your friends and neighbors would love to hear about them. Post the titles and some juicy tidbits about the books you enjoyed this summer.
We hope you will join us next summer. But stay tuned for our Saturdays@the Library Series ("There's always something going on!) which begins October 3.
