WRITER OF THE WEEK  Alexandre Dumas père was the author of The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo, among many many other novels, plays, and nonfiction works.


BOOK SALE  The Friends of the Library Summer Book Sale continues Monday – Friday this week.  Prices will be $1 for a hardcover, 25 cents for a paperback, 50 cents per CD, and $1 for DVDs.  We also have puzzles, games, and magazines.  The last day (Friday the 27th) is the bag sale: $4 for as many books as you can fit into the bag we provide (and you can buy multiple bags.)  Proceeds from the sale fund programming and other purchases throughout the year, so come out to support the library and pick up some great deals. 


LIBRARY CLOSED  The library will be closed this Saturday the 28th.  Enjoy the parade and other Seaway Festival activities!

FAMILY BOOK CLUB  Join us this Thursday the 26th at 5 PM for a discussion and activity.  This month we’ll be talking about the graphic novel Frazzled: Everyday Disasters and Impending Doom by Booki Vivat and creating our own secret languages.  New families are always welcome (even if you haven’t read the book yet.)


TIE DYE  Bring your own clothing (white shirt, bandana, etc.) and take it home as a colorful work of art.  Weather permitting, we’ll be tie-dying in the park this Friday the 27th at 2 PM.


REGULAR PROGRAMS  Music and Movement for toddlers is Tuesday at 10 AM.  Stories and Songs, for ages 2 – 4, will return next Saturday at 10:30 AM.  Drop-in computer help will be tonight the 24th from 6 – 7 PM.  Call the library or check online for all of the details on all of our upcoming events. 


JUST ARRIVED  Remember summer vacations past with Richard Ratay’s Don’t Make Me Pull Over: An Informal History of the Family Road Trip.  You can learn more about two common road trip destinations in The Promise of the Grand Canyon by John F. Ross and Anywhere that is Wild: John Muir’s First Walk to Yosemite.  Read the history of the US-Canadian border, as written by a man who traveled its length, in Porter Fox’s Northland: A 4,000-Mile Journey Along America's Forgotten Border.  If you’d rather stay home, break out your crafty side with some of our new books: The Joy of Acrylic Painting, by Annie O’Brien Gonzales; Snuggle and Play Crochet, by Carolina Guzman Benitez; Making Mini Food (out of polymer clay) by Lynn Allingham; or Radiant Quilts by Elsie M. Campbell.
