Summer Reading has Begun!

Ready for those beach reads? Remember, if you’re having trouble with downloading electronic and audio library books to your Kindle, Nook, iPad, iPhone, Samsung, or other electronic device, E*Book*Aid will be available in the front lobby every Monday afternoon this summer from 2-4. A team of tech wizards will give you personal help with using your digital device so you can read and listen to electronic library books wherever your summer may take you!

This Saturday morning, in the first of our several Adult programs this summer, you'll be able to Learn the Art of Quilling--that's about making those impressive delicate spirally things made of paper. Just like in the photo on the left. That’s Saturday morning, June 8th at 10 o'clock in Room L 129. There are spaces for 24 people.

Battle of the Books

In just a few days, summer reading fun starts at the library and, with it, our first ever Battle of the Books! This summer, we want you to help us pick the very best novel in three categories: Adult Fiction, Young Adult Fiction, and Children’s Fiction. Best of all, anyone can vote in any category - whether you’ve read the books or not. We’ll be voting, bracket-style, so stop by each week to drop a ballot in the box and keep your favorite novels in the game! 

Countdown to Summer Reading!

In less than 1 week, on Monday, June 3rd, the biggest event of the year at the Library begins!  The following video is a brief overview of this year's Children's program "Have Book - Will Travel"!  A whole Summer of fun awaits you and your children!  Please stop by any Library reference desk for your calendar of events, or access online.

On Monday, the Tween Homeschool Book Club met for the last time this school year. We have had a great time over the last eight months reading and talking about books, doing fun activities, and making new friends. Now, the book club is on a summer hiatus, but we look forward to a fresh start in September with new and returning faces and more great books!

Check out the list of awesome books we read this year:

Thanks for a great year and see you in September!
