What Are You Doing This Summer?

With only a handful of school days remaining, you may ask yourself, "What am I going to do this summer?" Well, you may not have as much fun as Scott (left) this summer, but you can always find wonderul things happening at your library! Check our your branch's events online here or drop by the branch for a flyer.

In addition to events, you can register for the Summer Reading Program right on this website or at your library starting June 4th. Read 5 books or 600 minutes for a certificate. Ask about additional prizes and reading levels while you are at the library.

Need volunteer hours for school? Your library can also help! Talk to a librarian about volunteering at the library.
See you @ the library!

Get Your Geek On @ 3 Local Conventions

 

One of the advantages of being a geek in a large city is the wonderful conventions in my own backyard. I admit it. I am a con addict. I have been going to fandom conventions since 1984 and will probably still be going when I have to incorporate my walker into my cosplay. During March and April, I have three opportunities to get my geek on with one comic/scifi/fantasy convention and two anime conventions in town.
