Library Lines

I don’t know about you, but for me the month of May just flew by!

The libraries are gearing up for summer in lots of ways, and I thought I would share a few of them with you this week.

One piece of good news – Saturday hours!

McClintic Library will be open on Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. starting June 7 and running through Labor Day.  The Linwood Library will also begin Saturday hours starting June 14.  Saturday hours depend on our budget and usage.  If we don’t get a good crowd, we can’t justify staying open, so be sure and stop in to pick up books or movies for the weekend.

This summer we are also offering a summer reading program for kids of all ages.  Stop in and pick up a Reading Log.  Read (or listen to) 10 books by the end of July, and be eligible for some cool prizes.  The libraries are also offering weekly programs for kids ages 4 through 10 on Wednesdays, beginning June 25.  Call the branch closest to you for more details, but it’s a great way to have some fun, and stock up on more books to read and record in your Reading Log.

June 19 at 10:30 a.m., the McClintic Library will kick off summer with a magic show featuring Joey Stepp.  It’s fun for all ages, and free.  Stop by and prepare to be amazed.

We are also ordering lots of new books, audio books and movies for all the branches.  June will see lots of new materials hitting the shelves, so be sure to look for your favorite authors, or that movie you’ve been dying to watch.

Just a reminder: June 8 the Linwood Library is hosting author Carter Taylor Seaton to discuss her new book, Hippie Homesteaders.  The event starts at 2 p.m. and should be a fun, interesting afternoon.  Ms. Seaton will have books for sale that day, so be sure to stop by and pick up your own copy.

Have a fun, safe summer at your library.
