In addition to earning reading prizes for reaching set reading goals, teens can also participate in activities that follow along with this year's theme-"Beneath the Surface"-which encourages teens to explore the hidden depths of their world and themselves through reading.

Start your summer with music, games, and prizes at the Library's School's Out for Summer! Summer Reading Kickoff Party on Thursday, July 27 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. in the Library Meeting Room. Teens in grades 6-12 are invited to face off with each other in group trivia rounds and Minute-to-Win-It challenges, as well as compete in fun group games like "Scavenger Hunt Musical Chairs." Winners of each activity will earn raffle tickets, and the top ticket holders will receive $5 Dunkin' Donuts gift cards. All participants will go home with an ice cream treat. Registration is not required for this free program, but space is limited to the first 50 teens arriving.

Message from All Are Welcome!

We have received permission from Church of Our Savior to hold Volunteer Orientation & Food Safety the second week of each month at the restaurant - 60 Union Street, Middleboro, MA 02346.

Unfortunately, the 2nd week of the month snuck up on me again, so this is short notice for all of you..

On WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12 we will have Volunteer Orientation from 6PM - 8PM. This is recommended for all new volunteers, and since I've done some revamping, all our existing volunteers are invited to a "refresher" course.

On SATURDAY, JUNE 15 we will be having the Food Safety course from 12:30 - 1:30PM is recommended that ALL volunteers take this course once per year, and the Board of Health issues "certificates" for the calendar year. 

I have also heard from several potential volunteers that they would like a day time course as well. I am going to try and squeeze this in as well, and will let you know when I confirm a date.
No RSVP is required...if you would like to attend and are available, please join us. 

If you can't make June's "classes" the July dates are WEDNESDAY July 10 from 6PM-8PM and SATURDAY July 13 from 12:30 - 1:30 (same location)!

Hydrant Flow Testing

The Middleborough Water Department will be conducting a hydrant flow test on Thursday, June 6th starting at 6PM. 

This may cause discolored water in varying degrees in the central and north sections of town. Persons who experience discoloration should flush their systems by opening the cold water faucet for a few minutes and waiting about an hour to use. If the water is still not clear, they should repeat the flushing procedure.

Every effort will be made to keep any inconvenience to the user to a minimum. Your understanding and cooperation is greatly appreciated.
