Happy Stay Out of the Sun Day!

For those of you reading this post on July 3, have a wonderful Stay Out of the Sun Day! We at the Evelyn Meador Branch Library hope you are celebrating this important national holiday appropriately by staying inside and reading a book, the way that every holiday should be celebrated. If not, make sure that you are wearing lots of sunscreen, and keeping cool while you are outside reading your book. It would be a shame if you got sunburned while you were outside reading, and we would really rather you not get hurt when you are reading your book ever. Physically at least. We can’t help you if you get emotionally hurt.
