Social Hour

Article 7/7/15

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!


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!

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!
