“If you have a garden and a library you have everything you need.” 

– Cicero


Take Time To READ Posters are located throughout King County
At 266 different sites – that’s how many local businesses and organizations are hosting Take Time to Read posters this summer. Bellevue, Black Diamond, Burien, Crossroads, Duvall, Issaquah, Kent, Kirkland, Maple Valley, Mercer Island, North Bend, Renton, Vashon and Woodinville are hosting. There will also be a poster or two at your branch library. Pick up a poster tour brochure when they arrive, you could drive to see all of the posters on a long summer’s day:

Meet Dewey & Sketch!
These two lovable library characters made a appearance at a recent Burien Farmer’s Market (photo above), and were such a hit that we have invited them visit the Farmer’s Market again in October! Dewey & Sketch can also be found on a DVD at the Library in their very own Story Time video.
