            There are only a few more weeks left for the Make A Splash Read Summer Reading program.  Keep reading and keep filling out those book logs!  We are having some great fun here at the library during summer.   Join us on Thursdays for Make A Splash Read!!

            For all you adults out there – there is a reading contest for you too!  No registration or book logs required.  All you have to do is after reading a book, fill out a “How I Liked This Book” form found at the circulation desk, and drop it into the drawing box.  We will have a drawing at the end of June and again at the end of July.  Let’s all read!  It is so much fun!  It is way too hot to stay outdoors very long, so come into the air-conditioned library and get a few good books to read!!!!

            Speaking of good books, here is a partial list of some of the new titles we have received lately:

                        “Lotus Eaters” (CD) by Tatjana Soli

                        “Lucid Intervals” (CD) by Stuart Woods

                        “Faster Pastor” by Sheryn McCrumb

                        “The 9th Judgment” by James Patterson

                        “Burned” by P. C. Cast

                        “Dead in the Family” by Charlaine Harris

                        “State Fair” by Earline Fowler

                        “Teaching a Pig to Dance” by Fred Thompson

                        “Cross Roads” by Fern Michaels

            We have lots of books to choose from.  If some of the above named titles don’t appeal to you, you can always ask one of the librarians for assistance in finding just the right book for you.

            The library will be closed on Monday, July 5th in observance of Independence Day.

            Happy Reading!
