  • 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!
