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.
ROCKETS! Children can come to the library this Saturday, the 11th, and learn about rocketry from Edge on Science. We will be creating and safely launching our own rockets during this program, so it is for ages 7 and up.
ADULT SUMMER READING Read any good books lately? Stop by the library and fill out a paper hot air balloon to recommend them to your friends and neighbors. By doing so, you’ll be entered in an end-of summer drawing for one of at least three prizes. If you’re looking for a good read, explore the titles posted on the bulletin board and take a chance on discovering something new.
BOOK SALE Our book sale starts next Thursday, the 16th, at 5 PM. We have some great deals on books, DVDs, sewing patterns, records, and more. Stop in any time the library is open from that Thursday until Friday the 24th. There will be no bag sale this year, so don’t delay!
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.
