Summer Reading Program

We are excited to note that we are nearing the start of this year’s Summer Reading Program!  Our program will again run on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the month of July, beginning July 5th, from 2:00-3:30 p.m.  This year’s Summer Reading Program theme is “On Your Mark, Get Set… READ!” Children of all ages are invited to join us as we make fun crafts and tasty snacks, welcome special performers, and read great books!  Stop in to the library during the month of June to get more information about this year’s program and sign up to join in on the fun!

Remembering World War II

On Saturday, May 21 (Armed Forces Day), at 10:30 a.m., Hellen Davies will speak on “Women’s Roles in World War II.”  She will focus her talk especially on women on the home front, and it will be interesting and informative for all ages.  Mrs. Davies, who is 91 years young, will encourage the members of the audience to share their memories of World War II.

Readers will be interested to know that we have several non-fiction books about World War II.  We also have many novels set during the time period; some examples:  The Paris Architect by Charles Belfoure; All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr which won the Pulitzer Prize; The Sentimental Journey Romance Collection by Cathy Marie Hake et al.; The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah; The Final Storm by Jeff Shaara.
