Rain, Rain, Go Away! (And I Mean It!)

 You should come to the library this week. Now, I know what you’re thinking. Despite all the rain, it really is worth it to come to the library. Yes, it’s wet and terrible, but it’s been raining for at least two weeks solid. The time for excuses has to end, even if it is hard to admit it.

To help you out, we have a lot of fun activities coming up at the library, which will give you the time to enjoy yourself in a free, indoor environment. That’s right. You get to be inside, you don’t have to pay anything, and our events are a guaranteed blast. Here’s some of them:

Star Wars Festival

With May the 4 long past, and Star Wars Episode IX still a long ways off, I’m sure many of you are feeling a distinct lack of the Force in your life. If that is the case, make sure that you come to the Evelyn Meador Branch Library’s Star Wars Festival on September 8. From 2:00 to 4:00 PM that Saturday, we will have a variety of Star Wars events that will fill that void in your life. Some of these amazing activities are:

Teen Notebook & Lava Lamp Pens

School is back in session and it is time to get organized. Get creative with your planner by making your very own reusable whiteboard notebook. Write, Draw, Erase, Repeat!

Summer Reading Summary

Now that our Summer Reading Program is officially over, and everyone is coming in to get their prizes (by the way, if you haven’t gotten your prize, come to the Reference Desk before August 18th to get it), we at the Evelyn Meador Library thought it might interest our patrons to find out how our Summer Reading Program went. As such, we decided that we would share some of our statistics for summer reading and show how great our summer went.
