Summer Reading Program Signup: Stop by to sign up for our kid and teen summer reading programs. We have lots of fun activities planned throughout July, with reading logs due by July 25. Participants have a chance to win lots of great prizes while enjoying a summer filled with literacy and learning.

DVD rental reminder – Summer is a great time for reading, but don’t forget that we also have a wide selection of movies for all ages. Whether you want a new release or an old favorite, check out our DVD shelves. You must have a library card to check out DVDs, with a $1 fee for a one week rental.

Book Discussion Group: Our selection for July’s book discussion is Room by Emma Donoghue. Stop by the library and pick up a copy and join us at 7 pm on Wednesday, July 16 for discussion and refreshments!

“To five-year-old-Jack, Room is the world. . . . It’s where he was born, it’s where he and his Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. At night, his Ma shuts him safely in the wardrobe, where he is meant to be asleep when Old Nick visits.

“Room is home to Jack, but to Ma it’s the prison where she has been held for seven years. Through her fierce love for her son, she has created a life for him in this eleven-by-eleven-foot space. But with Jack’s curiosity building alongside her own desperation, she knows that Room cannot contain either much longer.

Room is a tale at once shocking, riveting, exhilarating--a story of unconquerable love in harrowing circumstances, and of the diamond-hard bond between a mother and her child.”
