Summer Reading is NOT Just for Kids!

The Summer Reading Program is for adults, not just teens and kids.  Sign up as an adult, read or listen to just four books, log in the titles and YOU COULD WIN bookstore gift cards and gift baskets.  That is in addition to the free book you can pick out from behind the Summer Reading Table!  So please sign up and support our library with your participation.  Who know' might just win a signed Janet Evanovich book!

Magazines and Newspapers!

Before you spend a fortune at the newstand, drug- or grocerystore, or pay dozens of subscription fees, come and see the large selection of periodicals at Northwest Branch Library.  We have subscriptions to over 50 magazines!  The newest issues are on display and are only available for browsing, but older issues are in bins and can be checked out by the public.  We have adult magazines, teen magazines, kid magazines, magazines in spanish and daily newspapers.  So come and enjoy!

Have you seen an Assyrian Warrior on the loose in the library?

Assyrian Warrior

Recently, Art Agent, Cecilia Samuel, installed an exhibit of fine art at the library. There are three significant pieces by Artist David Lamont. Lamont takes ancient wall engravings and relief images and recreates them in exact detail. His Assyrian Warrior stands over 9' tall. Come and check out his work as it will only be here for one month. If you would like to meet the artist, he will be at the Northwest Library on Wednesday, June 9th from 6:30-8:00 PM.

Use Your Receipt as a Bookmark!

When you check out a book, you usually recieve a receipt that says when it's due.  Why not use that receipt as a bookmark?  It will remind you when you should return the book to the library, and if you forget to take it out of the book before you return it, it's not a big deal.  When you use your library card or personal notes to mark your page, you can easily forget that they're there and lose them when you return the book.  Just a tip to help you enjoy your summer!
