Article 6/23/15

SUMMER HOURS  This summer Saturday hours will switch to 9 – 3. As the building will be closed on Saturday, July 4th for Independence Day, this summer schedule will start the following week (the 11th) and continue until Labor Day.

 

AUTHOR BIRTHDAYS  Celebrate the end of Spring and the beginning of Summer with some authors born in June and July.  In the children’s section we have Walter Farley (writer of The Black Stallion and its sequels) and Maurice Sendak for June, and Beatrix Potter and EB White for July.  A number of literary ladies who helped change the way we look at the world were born this month, including Harriet Beecher Stowe, Helen Keller, and Anne Frank.  J.K. Rowling, like her most famous creation, was born in July, as were Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Chandler, and Cormac McCarthy.  Check out these authors and more in our birthday display next to the new books, and maybe have a slice of cake with ice cream in their honor.

 

BOOK SALE  The Friends of the Library will be holding their next book sale on July 16, 17, and 18.  Look for more details shortly in this paper and online.

Article for June 16th

AUTHOR VISIT  Make time to meet local author Glenn S. Guiles this Saturday, June 20th, at 2 PM.  Mr. Guiles has written two picture books about Harriet the miniature donkey: A Hug for Harriet and Harriet’s Big Adventure.  Come hear these two charming stories read aloud by the man who wrote them, and learn how he was inspired to create his characters.

 

SUMMER READING  Children can now sign up for summer reading.  Visit our website for a link to register online.  (They will need a parent or guardian’s email.)  Once they’ve registered, they can track their books, earn points for prizes, design their own superheroes, and participate in fun activities.  Those without computer access can participate using paper reading logs (available at the desk) and will be eligible for the same rewards and raffle tickets.  We’ll have a full schedule of superhero (and supervillain) themed programming in July and August.  Don’t miss it!

Events for the week of June 8-13

SOCIAL HOUR  Our next social hour is tomorrow (Wednesday) the 10th, at 1 PM.  Stop by to talk to your neighbors, drink coffee, and munch on treats.

 

PUZZLES  The library provides many ways of meeting new people.  If you can’t make the social hour or any of our other programs, you can stop by whenever we’re open to work on a jigsaw puzzle.  We almost always have a 500 - 750 piece puzzle set out on a table directly in front of the bay windows by the new books.  Anyone can contribute – spend five minutes or an hour hunting down just the right piece, alone or with friends.  The library also welcomes donations (with all the pieces and in the original box, please) to help us keep this informal service going.  

Summer Reading, Marbling Glassware, Social Hour, Bead Making and more!

GLASSWARE Learn how to create colorful marbleized patterns on glassware and other objects using just water and nail polish. Some materials will be provided, but you can bring your own glasses – flat-bottomed ones work best – and/or nail polish to personalize your crafts. We’ll be starting at 3 PM next Monday, June 8. Advance sign-ups are recommended so we have enough materials to go around, but they are not required.
