Solon Optimist Club Bike Rodeo set for June 18

SOLON– The Solon Optimist Club will hold a Summer Bike Rodeo on Saturday, June 18, at Solon Middle School. Sign up is at 8:30 a.m., and the competition begins at 9 a.m. Each age bracket from “Training Wheels” to 10-11 years old will have boys and girls divisions and trophies for first through third places and two overall championship trophies.

Calf Classic artists preparing

SOLON– The design “Blooming Beef,” submitted by mosaic artist Kelsi Fobian for the Solon Library Foundation’s Calf Classic project, was selected by Calf Classic sponsor Tom Cardella. Fobian’s concept has a calf covered in flowers, each small piece of hand-cut glass placed in such a way as to create a whole flower. The glass, purchased from Northern Lights Stained Glass in Iowa City, is cut with a hand glass cutter from sheets of glass and cut into smaller pieces with glass nippers. The design was first drawn on the calf’s body, with each piece of glass then glued into position.

Movie Clips

To make way for all the prizes for the Summer Reading Program, the DVD collection has moved to the area by the copy machine for the summer. More new DVD titles will be listed next week for your summer enjoyment.

The May winner is

Keslie Humburg is our May winner for the adult reading prize. The Adult Reading Program prize is sponsored by Friends of the Library. Adult patrons 18 years and older are invited to enter the drawing. One entry is allowed for each book read during the month. Entry blanks are available at the circulation desk. During the summer, the Adult Reading Program is expanded to include a theme and a variety of prizes every month.

Adult Summer Reading Program

Read for pleasure.  Read around the world (if you dare!)  Read for prizes! Adult patrons are invited to participate in their own Summer Reading Program. The theme, “Novel Destinations,” coincides with the “One World, Many Stories” theme of the youth program.

Summer hours

The library is now open expanded hours for the summer. Summer hours for the library are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The library is closed on Sunday and holidays.

Book sale results

Despite the nasty Sunday weather and a power outage, the Friends of the Library are pleased to report a good turnout at the Annual Memorial Day Weekend Used Book Sale. With over 7,000 items offered for sale, there seemed to be a good selection for everyone. Many people browsed and selected books, audio books, CDs, DVDs and VCR movies. On Monday, with bargain rates of 10 items for a dollar, most items were cleared out by the time the sale ended at 12 p.m. Proceeds will be used for supplies and equipment as well as expanding the library collection of books, audio books and DVDs.

Summer Reading Program Week 2

The Solon kids were ready and the kick-off party last week was a huge success. With over 350 patrons passing through the doors, Youth Services Librarian Jen Leveck said “It was so amazing to see so many kids and parents excited about summer reading.” A big thank-you shout-out to Hills Bank, Mt Vernon for providing refreshments in the meeting room.
