Thank you, community of Solon

Thanks to everyone that came to the events during the week of the library’s 10th anniversary celebration. Every single person that came helped make the week a success. Cakes and ice cream cups were also transported to the residents of the care center who could not attend. This was truly a community celebration to be enjoyed by all.

Fall hours begin: Closed Labor Day

Beginning Sept. 1, the library will be opening at 12 p.m. Monday through Thursday and will remain open until 8 p.m. On Friday and Saturday, the library will open at 10 a.m. and close at 5 p.m..

Book Club selection

Hey book clubbers, have you started reading yet? The selection for September is “Outlander” by Diana Gabaldon. It’s a thick book. Eight-hundred and fifty pages in fact, but it’s a fast read about Claire Randall, a young combat nurse in World War II. “Outlander” is historical fiction at its finest. It’s the first in a series, so once you’ve devoured this one, you’ll want to have the next three books handy. Call the library at 624-2678 to reserve a copy and get to reading.
