Meet Mrs. Jamie:

Hello, everybody! My name is Jamie and I am the Children’s Librarian at Flower Library. NYC native. North Country resident for almost 4 years. Dog mom. Romance book lover. Amateur hiker. Major foodie.

When I’m not at the library, you can expect me to be chasing my Siberian Husky because he’s always trying (and usually succeeding) to escape.

Children's Summer Reading Program: June 1-August 30

Our Children’s Summer Reading Program is back! This program is for ages 0-12. Check out the Teen & Adult pages on our website for information on those programs. 

For every hour your child reads, they earn 1 ticket towards a prize of their choice. 1 ticket is equal to 1 prize entry. Therefore, the more they read, the more tickets they earn towards a prize!

You must use a Flower Memorial Library reading tracker to qualify for tickets. Reading trackers can be picked up on the Main Floor by the Children’s Room starting June 1. When you’re ready, you can bring trackers to the Circulation Desk to claim tickets. Trackers do not need to be completely full to claim tickets – you can claim them whenever as along as 1 hour of reading has been completed. Tickets must be filled out in their entirety to qualify including first and last name, age, and phone number. After filling out the tickets, drop the tickets in the prize buckets of your child’s choice for a chance to win.

Prizes include*:

– Amazon Gift Card

– Nintendo eShop Gift Card

– Billy Beez Gift Certificate

– LEGO Large Brick Box

– Razor Scooter

– Deluxe Art Set

*All prizes are equal in value.

A special thank you to “Women Listen to Women” for funding our prizes!
