Thank you for helping with the Summer Reading Program!

Cheryl and Kari Dawn 
had a great time with all of you during the 
2013 Summer Reading Program: Blazing New Trails!

We are grateful to the families, businesses, and individuals who sponsored a child through the Friends of the Ruidoso Public Library.  These donations supported prizes and weekly incentives to keep kids reading all summer long.  Donations of items for craft projects, thematic display items, and time from volunteers have been, and remain, greatly appreciated by library staff and visitors.  We look forward to planning next year's Summer Reading Program; keep in touch for developments.

N.B.: Storytime and Children's programming are suspended for the month of August while Cheryl and Kari Dawn plan for Fall.  Storytime will resume September 11.
