Sherman news

The Sherman Public Library will conduct its summer reading program every Friday in June from 10 to 11 a.m. All children ages 4 and 5 and 1st through 6th grades are invited to join in the fun. This summer’s theme, “Dig into Reading,” is about the wonders under your feet – vegetable garden, buried treasure, caves, insects, bones, and so much more. Parents, plan on keeping your children’s brains active and their reading levels up this summer by including them in the Summer Reading Program.
To register, call the library at 840-2513. Please register your child before June 7 to enable enough supplies to be ordered. And remember, your child will get dirty!
