Summer Reading Program Going on Now
We’re gearing up! Our New York State Summer Reading Program runs the month of July; this year’s theme is Libraries Rock!  We’ve planned lots of activities around this theme in order to entice everyone to keep reading during summer vacation. This reading program helps children remain “ready to learn” when they return to school in the fall; and it encourages great reading habits in all of us. We have prizes for kids donated by local businesses and the Friends of the Library.

Family Finders
Our genealogy group will meet on Thursday, July 19th from 1-2:30 PM. Let our expert sleuth Cathy Frank help you along the way as you search for your roots. She will show you how to begin, or help you if you are stumped. Please register in advance for a seat.
A Rush Bicentennial Event for children in grades 3-12 on Tuesday, July 24th at 6:30 PM in the William Udicious Pavilion. In this inquiry-based program, our Genesee Country Tinsmith shows us some shiny wares and his tools. See how this technology was employed to solve specific problems and meet particular needs of the time. Learn how the Tinsmith’s role in early American economies compares to that of the 21st century hardware store. There is no fee for this program, but we ask that you please register in advance. Note: After the demonstration, children may make a tin ornament to bring home. Each ornament will cost $3.00, payable that evening.
