With summer break comes summer reading at the Alexander County Library and the Bethlehem Branch. You will want to keep your reading skills sharp over the summer, and practice makes perfect. Let the library help you keep all the great strides you made over the school year.
We can provide great reading material all summer long, therapy dogs to read to, and awesome programs including a Scavenger Hunt with The Hiddenite Center. Did I mention fun, as well?
