FYI . . . The New Great Library Card Adventure now ends May 7th!

Due to all the April showers we have extended the New GLCA one week, now ending May 7th. Kids in grades K through 5 are invited to play our new adventure game and help win books for their school libraries.

Take a stroll though town and use a smartphone to search for QR codes that reveal fun facts and videos about Port Washington.  Each child that plays will receive a gift (while supplies last).  The grade that has the most participants will be the winner!

Watch our introductory videos to learn how the game is played.

Kids or Librarians . . . you decide

(or watch both, same info just different presentation)
