The Yolo County Library’s Summer Reading Program is off to a great start with more than 3,365 sign ups since the June 1 kick-off. The program continues through August 15 and all are welcome to sign up online or in person at their local Yolo County Library branch.

Participants will receive a ticket for prizes and a free gift. In addition, those who read five books will receive a book full of puzzles, games or coloring pages, and a ticket for finishing prizes, generously donated by the various Friends of the Library groups. Children, ages 0-12, will also receive a free pizza coupon to Round Table Pizza. New to the Summer Reading Program, participants will now receive an additional prize ticket for every completed reading log they turn in. Prizes, such as the free book or pizza coupon, will remain the same for the first reading log.

Live with what you love: Holiday Decorations

Live with what you love: Holiday Decorations

The New Year is almost here!  Tonight we will be ringing in 2016, and begin to start thinking about packing away our holiday decorations (if you have not done so already).  

Now is a great time to really look at all the decorations that you have, from tree ornaments to center pieces, and decide if you really really love it and want to continue to live with it.  We all tend to accumulate more than what we truly need, so take a close look.  Make room for sentimental items that invoke wonderful memories.  Every year, we hang my husband's grandmother's hand painted ornaments on our tree.  They don't match, are pink and blue, don't sparkle anymore, but our tree would not be complete without a few of these precious ornaments that are well over 100 years old.
