          I just really dislike when I have a “thank you for an excellent program” to place in the Library Corner column and I forget to put it in.  And I even wrote a note to myself to do it.  Sheesh.  My mind took a mini-vacation apparently, and forgot to take me with it!  So now I must make amends.

            A tremendous THANK YOU to Jeane Lenzini for a wonderful presentation at Friends Night which was held on April 17th.  Ms. Jeane has written a book titled “The Jitney Ride” about a young lady who must make her way in the world with many obstacles and her ride on a “jitney.”  A very poignant story.   We had a wonderfully entertaining evening.  Thank you so much for sharing your story with us and how you came about to write it.  Please visit us at the Elma Ross Public Library again.

            A big thank you also to Mr. Eric Miller who gave a great presentation to Lunch & Learn last week.  Mr. Miller is with theUniversityofMemphisand is one of the persons working on theBrownsvilleon the Move Initiative.  Mr. Miller informed us about how the study was structured, what took place and how that data is being analyzed.  Thank you for sharing such great information with us.

            June has arrived.  Guess what has arrived with it – One World, Many Stories – Summer Reading 2011!  Yea!!  Sign-up at the library before our kick-off celebration on June 9th at 2 p.m.  We have a very special guest who will be with us.  Everyone’s favorite Big Red Dog – that’s right – Clifford will be here to start summer reading off right!  Story-hours will be on Thursdays at 2 p.m. starting June 9th and running through July 14th

            Teen and Adult summer reading is also starting this month.  All teens and adults have is a “How I Liked This Book” form to fill out for each book they read for the month.  There is a contest for June and another contest in July.

            HappyReading!
