The melody lingers on

The week of celebrating the library’s 10th anniversary is over and all the afterglow, kudos and winners will be listed next week. The party is over but the melody lingers on with a couple of attractions.

Early-out program revised

The library will resume its early-out programming this school year with a few revisions. This year, there will be no registration required, each program will be open to all age groups and students will not be escorted by library staff from the school to the library. Programming will begin after lunch at 1:15 p.m.

Young patron age guidelines

With school starting again, there are lots of kids coming to the library after school, especially on the early out days. Just as a reminder to parents, the policy is being printed again at the beginning of this school year. If the students are attending a library program, the time restrictions do not count, but once the program is over, the policy is enforced.
The library has adopted the following guidelines for young patrons wishing to spend time in the library without the accompaniment of their parent or guardian.

Book Club selection

The book club will resume meeting on the third Tuesday of every month beginning Sept. 20 at 6:30 p.m. The book club is open to any interested adult readers. The selection for September is “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. Call the library at 624-2678 to reserve a copy and get to reading. It’s a thick book- 850 pages in fact, but it’s a fast read about Claire Randall, a young combat nurse in World War II. “Outlander” is historical fiction at its finest. It’s the first in a series so once you’ve devoured this one; you’ll want to have the next three books handy.

Have you read these?

“Cold Vengeance” by Preston & Child is in the Special Agent Pendergast series. As Pendergast digs into his murdered wife’s past to seek out her killers, he learns that the conspiracy runs deep and goes back generations as he chases her betrayers from Scotland through New York and into Louisiana.
