Summer events
Summer is in full swing and it's busy at the library! We're seeing record numbers of people coming in to our library. Circulation is impressive, and computers and wireless are being taken advantage of every day. The library is a cool haven on hot summer days.

We've had some excellent programs this summer, including a birding expedition, a tribute to former board member and library supporter Bob Dargatz, a signing and reading from the beautiful book Sawtooth Whitecloud by Mark Lisk and Nicole LeFavour, and a delightful Arm Chair traveler talk by Julie Rember and her mother Margery Mitchell. Margery visited Europe with her best friend in 1966. Fifty years later she and daughter Julie revisited some of Margery's favorite places. Early in July Beverly and Bruce Dorcy of the San Diego Chamber Music Society entertained us with piano, French horn, and marimba with a variety of music ranging from Mozart to Mancini. July 9th we had an outdoor showing of Outdoor Idaho, and will have another outdoor showing August 27. Thursday, July 28 we are hosting the Special Projects Library Action Team (SPLAT) who will be sharing a variety of technology tools and offering one on one help with portable electronic devices.

Our final program in July is our 8th annual author's luncheon at Redfish Lake Lodge on Saturday, July 30 at 12:30. Our featured author this year is Hailey author Julie Weston. Julie is the author of the memoir The Good Times Are All Gone Now: Life, Death, and Rebirth in an Idaho Mining Town and the Moonshadows, A Nellie Burns and Moonshine Mystery set in early 1920's Hailey. Her next book, Basque Moon, will be out in mid-August. Luncheon tickets are $25.00 and are on sale at the library. We also have copies of Moonshadows for sale or loan. We will have a discussion of the book August 9 at 6:30 at the library.
