Lake Macbride plans healthy events for check passing

LAKE MACBRIDE– Park officials hope a variety of outdoor attractions keep friends of Lake Macbride State Park active and aware of healthy choices as they celebrate a $10,000 grant to be used for fitness and activity improvements next week.
That cash award, from Coca-Cola, comes with the park in active contention for top honors in Coca-Cola’s 2011 America Is Your Park award. The designation will be highlighted at the park Wednesday, Aug. 3, with outdoor features ranging from fun games with healthy food choices to an exhibit of area birds of prey… and delivery of that $10,000 check.

Not too hot to read a book

Check out a stack of books, pull up a comfy chair– in the library or at home, and lose yourself in a book until the hot weather passes. There has been a lot of television exposure lately about Jaycee Dugard, the young girl who was kidnapped and held captive for 18 years. “A Stolen Life” by Jaycee Dugard is told with unflinching detail. It is difficult to read, although beautifully written. Much of the book is taken from her actual journal written while in her backyard prison.

Movie Clips

“Arthur” (2011, PG13) -- comedy about a drunken playboy who stands to lose a wealthy inheritance when he falls for a woman his family doesn’t like.  Stars British comedian Russell Brand, Jennifer Garner and Helen Mirren.  This is a re-make of the 1981 film that starred Dudley Moore, Liza Minelli and John Gielgud.
“Rango” (2011, PG) - animated adventure comedy starring the voice-work of Johnny Depp, It is the story of Rango, an ordinary chameleon who accidentally winds up in the town of Dirt, a lawless outpost in the Wild West in desperate need of a new sheriff.

It’s not too hot to watch a movie from the library

There are nearly 600 DVDs to choose from in the ever-expanding DVD collection at the library. There is no charge to check out a DVD and the check-out period is three weeks, the same as for books. Since the DVD collection is a popular spot in the library, patrons are asked to return the DVD as soon as they have viewed it so others may enjoy it, too. At the present time, the budget allows us to only purchase one copy of each item.

It’s not too hot to explore the library website

Take a look at www.solon.lib.ia.us , the Solon Library website. Learn about the celebration that is coming in August to recognize 10 years in our beautiful building.

Adult computer classes

Computer classes starting August 8 have filled. Another class will be starting October 10. Interested adults may add their name to the waiting list for the next class by calling the library at 624-2678.

Doll tea, a great event

On Wednesday, July 20, the Old Capitol Doll Club of Iowa came to the Solon Public Library with lots of dolls.
