WEEKLY QUOTE “It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals, because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet I keep them, because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.” – Anne Frank
AUTHOR BIRTHDAYS Anne Frank might have turned 87 this month, had her life not been cut short at the age of 15 by the Holocaust. Other authors born in June whose works are on display at the library include Helen Keller, Joyce Carol Oates, Salman Rushdie, George Orwell, and W. B. Yeats.
MIXED MEDIA ART Come to the library this Saturday the 25th at 2 PM to learn how to create a unique piece of art using several different kinds of materials. This program is open to those ages nine and above.
WEEKLY QUOTE “[A library] is a space ship that will take you to the farthest reaches of the Universe, a time machine that will take you to the far past and the far future, a teacher that knows more than any human being, a friend that will amuse you and console you – and most of all, a gateway, to a better and happier and more useful life.” ― Isaac Asimov, author and biochemist
AUTHOR BIRTHDAYS Celebrate January with Isaac Asimov, J. R. R. Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe, Zane Grey, A.A. Milne, Thomas Merton and more. We have their works available on display near Sophie’s tank. She can’t read them, as she is a turtle, so please check them out! (You can say hello to Sophie, too. If you’re very lucky, you might see her on her brief daily walkabout.)
MARIO KART The library will be holding its first-ever Mario Kart Tournament on Saturday, January 23rd at 2 PM. We’ll have trophies for the top finishers, and certificates for everyone. Bring your friends and play on our brand new Wii. The Wii is also available for everyday use. Stop at the main desk to borrow the controllers with your library card.
