Summer Reading
Fizz Boom Read! Our summer reading program is under way and it is proving to be a great success. The kids love the theme with all kinds of science experiments and good stories, too. There are two more programs for each group. Third graders through eighth graders will meet the next two Wednesdays, June 25 and July 2 from 10:00 until noon. Pre-schoolers through second grades will meet the next two Thursdays, June 26 and July 3 from 10:00 until noon. Join Mr. Phil for science fun, stories and snacks. Next week should be especially fun; rockets, rockets, rockets! We have many new books that correlate with our science theme, come and check them out.
New DVDs
Hat's off to the folks who donated DVD's. We now have a small collection of movies to loan. Loan period is one week. It's an interesting collection with mostly adult movies. There are a limited number of children's titles available. Included in the collection are such disparate titles as Across the Universe, Batman Begins, BBC's Planet Earth, Ugly Betty Season One, and A River Runs Through It. We will continue to accept DVD donations.
New books
New adult book titles include All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, Any Other Name, a Longmire book, by Craig Johnson, The Last Kind Words Saloon by Larry McMurtry, Chestnut Street by Maeve Binchy, The Steady Running of the Hour by Justin Go, and The Son by Jo Nesbo.
