Readers are Winners!

SRP winnerSami B. has been a public library user since she was a small child. She enjoys reading sci-fi, fantasy, and young adult fiction. She didn’t get as much reading done this summer as she had hoped, but she read enough for it to pay off. For participating in our adult Summer Reading Program and reading at least 5 books between June 3 and August 10, Sami was entered into a random drawing and she won a $30 Amazon.com gift card.  Reading is pays off in many ways, and the chance to win a prize makes it even more fun!

True Crime

If you like to read mystery and/or suspense stories, you also might like to read books about true crimes.  The library has a good number of titles in the collection, and we have created a new display of true crime books for you to browse.  Take a look during your next visit to the library and perhaps you will find a title to read. 

On Safari

Do you know what kinds of animals you can meet if you went on a safari?  Maybe some lions,some zebras, or some giraffes?  How about some elephants, hyenas, hippos, or rhinos?  If you would like to learn more about some of these animals, please browse one of the library's newest displays, "On Safari."  The books on display contain lots of photos and interesting facts about these animals.  So, dig out your safari outfit and helmet and trek on down to the library.  Just watch out for any crocodiles on the way.  Happy Reading!
