Who doesn’t like a PIGNIC? Enjoy the Pig family’s get together while you enjoy a walk along the Hildebrand trail.

Please NOTE–We would like to thank Ron Adams for making and DPW crew for installing 4 additional sign holders. This will enable us to post longer or multiple stories this year. The stories begin at the Mill House Gazebo, which is across from the Fontana Elementary School, and finish right before the last bridge toward Mill St. *Weather permitting-we will try to post new stories every 7-10 days* Get out and enjoy the sounds of the running creek, examine the plants starting to pop out, and, most of all, reading our stories.

July 7, 2022–Ms. Jodie visited the 4K-3 grade summer school students at the Fontana Elementary School. We read about Sir Pete the Brave and dragons. The students created unique family crests afterwards.

We’ve had some changes…

There’s been some changes in the Children’s area in January.

The Fontana Public Works Department removed some old shelving units. They then began to assemble and install the new shelf units. As you can tell, this opens up the area and will make it much brighter and welcoming.

We have moved our Graphic Novel section and have given ourselves plenty of room to expand that collection for our readers. We’ve shifted the Juvenile/Young Adult chapter books into a space that is separate from the younger readers.

The Children’s area will now have Easy Readers and picture books integrated in one area. The non-fiction and holiday books, also, have their own designated areas for easier access. We hope you get a chance to come in and explore our update space. Happy Reading everyone.
