BOOK SALE  The book sale is here!  Stop in any time the library is open from 5 PM this Thursday the 16th until 5 PM on Friday the 24th.  Weather permitting, there will also be a tent for sales on the lawn.  We have books, DVDs, CDs, jigsaw puzzles, sheet music, and more.  Great deals await, so don’t miss it.


TRAINING DAY  Calling all Super Heroes!  As part of our children’s summer reading program, we’re inviting you to the library this Saturday, the 18th, at 11 AM for a day of training.  Pick out a superpower and decide whether you’re going to use it for good or for evil, practice your heroics, and then engage in a water battle against the villains.

COMPUTER HELP  Have computer or eReader questions?  We have answers.  Our next drop-in session will be this Saturday the 18th from 11 AM – 12 PM.


SUMMER READING  Remember, patrons of all ages should keep recording the books they’ve read in order to win prizes.  Stop by the library or the library’s website for details.


AUTHOR VISIT  Local author Maggie Mitchell will be at the library on Thursday, July 30th at 6 PM to read from and discuss her debut adult thriller Pretty Is, which was released just this last week.  Copies will be available for sale and signing at the event.


MUSIC AND MOVEMENT Toddlers are invited to shake out their sillies every Tuesday at 10 AM. We’ll have music in the air, instruments to play along, parachutes to hide under, and more. Meet other area families and come dance with us!


STORY TIME Every Wednesday at 10:30 AM we share a picture book (or two) and do a simple craft.  All children ages 3 – 6 are welcome. 


JUST ARRIVED  Join a middle-aged man trying to get his one-hit-wonder band back together for a last concert in Andy Abramowitz’s novel Thank You, Goodnight, or sail across France on a boat-based bookstore in The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George.  We’ve also added new thrillers from Catherine Coulter, Brad Taylor, and Bill Pronzini.  Finally, pick up the last Dexter novel from Jeff Lindsay, Dexter is Dead.  (If you haven’t already seen the whole television show, you can check out the final three seasons from our DVD collection.)  Over in nonfiction, travel across modern-day America in a covered wagon following author Rinker Buck on The Oregon Trail.  Delve into the puzzles of biology in Life’s Greatest Secret, about the discovery of DNA, or Domesticated, which follows humanity’s effects on the evolution of other species.  However you travel this summer, whether physically to another country, or mentally through the pages of a book, the library can help you get where you need to go.  Pick up a good book today!
