August Library News

The Summer Reading program was a huge success! Many thanks to the sponsors who made our July events possible: NSB for the Bubble Professor, Kenison Construction for the RAD Zoo, TruStile for the ISU Insect Zoo, and MCT Construction for the Summer Reading Program’s grand finale: The Pool Party!

Friday morning story times were amazing this summer. But along with the ending of the Summer Reading Program comes the end of Summer Story Time. We will pick up again in September after school has started. Stay tuned for more information.

We had a lot of fun with our “Big Kids” and the Activity Tuesdays! Again, many thanks to A & I Auto for sponsoring these activities. It was so much fun; I may try to schedule things throughout the school year too.

Just to let you know, we’re planning on doing some much needed painting in the library. The library will be closed to the public Tuesday August 9 through Thursday August 11. When we open again, you’ll notice that we will have already finished rearranging a few sections. The North room of the library that was used as a sitting room and had our newspapers and magazines will become our new children’s room! All children’s books and toys will now be in that room. Magazines and newspapers will move up to the old kid’s area then. We really feel these moves will benefit all our patrons and can’t wait for you to come in and see them!

New at the library this month:
Adult Fiction: “The Hidden One” by Linda Castillo, “Thief of Corinth” by Tessa Afshar, “Murder in the Reading Room” by Ellery Adams, “Love in Plain Sight” by Kathleen Fuller, “The Big Dark Sky” by Dean Koontz, “Shattered” by James Patterson, “The 6:20 Man” by David Baldacci, “Portrait of an Unknown Woman” by Daniel Silva and “The It Girl” by Ruth Ware.
