Get geared up for Summer Reading 2016!
Complete your origin story (registration) beginning June 1st. You can fly down to the library to fill out a form or use mind control to register online (for the first time ever!). We will assemble for the first program June 22nd (for Pre-K through 4th grade) and June 23rd (5th grade through 8th grade). Any questions? Send up the Ms. Beth signal! Or call or stop by the library and ask for Ms. Beth. We hope to have your help fighting crime and reading books this summer!

On a side note, the Friends of Stinson Memorial Public Library District are an option as a charity on smile.amazon.com. If you do any online shopping, this is a free way to give a little extra help your local library!
Come join us this weekend for Colorfest fun at the library! We have a full weekend of events scheduled.

We’ve began recommending books along the side bar of our webpage as you may have noticed! (check the bottom of our mobile site or look on the right on desktop view—>)
These are books that Stinson staff have read and enjoyed. We either write or find a short description of the book and publish it here. In addition to the description, each item has an image of the book cover and a direct link to the book’s record in out PAC (allowing patrons to see if the book is checked in, reserve a copy of the book, or just find out more about it).
We’re hoping to be able to publish about 3 every 2 weeks. Reviews from the past will be listed below our latest suggestions.
We hope you enjoy these books as much as we have ☺
