Welcome to August and the end of Summer Reading programming! Whew, deep breath… And now on to the fall season. This issue of “The Scoop” brings you many tales of success from individual libraries, the opening of several of ICfL’s programs aligned with the start of the school year, the deadline to apply for our second year of Kindergarten Readiness grant-funding, and the opening of registration for Read to Me Rendezvous 2019 (check out the agenda in this issue)! We hope you enjoy a little vacation or relaxing time, as well as this issue of “The Scoop,” during the month of August.
