This summer, First Regional Library will be giving away over
20,000 NEW books to people of all ages in our community.

How will it work? 

Books will be given away once a week between July 6 – July 30.

Patrons will be directed to keep a 6 foot distance between those not in their family, and we will be encouraging everyone to only touch the book that they have decided to take home with them.
