School is back in full swing! Does your student need a little additional reading support? The CMLibraries will be offering after school tutoring at the Millbrook Branch on Wednesdays and Thursdays between 3-5pm. Each tutoring session will run for 30 minutes and will have a specific focus to help build your child’s reading brain. Space is limited.

Code Breaker kits are also available at our Bruce Johnston Branch. Each kit comes with a specific book. You must read the book to find the clue and break the code. Each kit contains a cipher, treats, a locked box, and the book required to break the code. Find our Google Form online to request a kit. Kits are available in 2 levels: Junior Picture books and Junior Fiction.
