If you are a reader and like to talk about the books you've read, you'll enjoy the Library's book discussions. The Adult Book Discussion Group normally meets the second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 P.M. in the Jefferson Room. The library tries to have sufficient copies of the books chosen available for anyone who needs to borrow one.
Explore the many ways reading and learning can be an adventure this summer by doing some of the activities listed on one of our two Libraries Rock Summer Activity Challenge sheets. Activity sheets can be found on the semi-circle between the computers in the Children's Dept. or download one from the Library's website. Decorate a rock based on a book, build a fort and read inside, and making music with kitchen items are just a few of the challenges. One activity sheet is aimed at toddlers and their parents, while the other is aimed at ages four and up. Participants' names will be placed in a random drawing and six winners will each receive a $25 Tim Horton's gift card. Activity sheets due to the Children's Department by 5:00 p.m., August 11.
