  • Summer Reading wrap up

    If you registered as a Harkins Hero but did not attend the Town of Stratford/Stratford Library party on August 24, you can pick up your bag and certificate at the Library. Please stop by in the next week – we want to hand out all the bags before our storytimes start!

    Congratulations again to all our readers. Somewhere over 11,000 books and activities were completed in our summer programs. Our reading programs start again in October with Read Around Stratford and 1000 Books Before Kindergarten!

    If you won’t be able to join us, you can find information about getting the right glasses and using them safely at this Time Magazine article.

    Happy Great American Eclipse, everyone!
