New books for adults

Regular patrons have probably already discovered some of the new books on the shelf. If you see something here that you’d like to read and it is checked out, call and add your name to the hold list. Plenty of good summer reads are turning up for a great afternoon on the patio or porch.

Library popularity continues

The excitement of the summer programming continues to draw lots of patrons to the library. Jen Leveck, Youth Services Librarian, commented on the Mad Science Mix with the Grout Museum. “He put on a great show that included lots of fire, mini explosions and a huge snake named Bully.” The turnout was fantastic and we had lots of positive comments after the show. Almost everyone stuck around to say hi to Bully and feel his snaky skin.
