July 2019 Newsletter

Summer seems to have finally arrived.  We would like to thank the crowd who came to the movie night on June 21st.  Everyone seemed to have a good time.  We will schedule another one for July.  Keep your eyes on our Facebook page for details.  This would be a good time to thank all of you who follow us on Facebook.  We enjoy the feedback and responses.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, you should do so.  It is the quickest and easiest way for us to let everyone know what is going on.  Thanks to our Facebook followers, we have two more “Welcome, Baby” gift bundles to go to Thayer’s newest citizens.  We love to provide this welcome.

Our second little free library was installed at the city park a couple of weeks ago.  We noticed that people have helped themselves to the free books which is exactly what we want.  Check the libraries often because they are replenished on a regular basis.  We know you are going to find your next “favorite author” when you choose a book to read.  When you do, you know where to come to find more books by that author: the library!

Our summer reading program is having a blast this summer.  We have so many dedicated participants, both children and adults.  We have had some reading celebrations already this summer for the kids.  Our next one is scheduled for July 18th at 3 pm.  We only have room for 15 kids so we ask that you register for the programs.  This next one will celebrate the pioneers of aviation.  Kansas should be very proud of the impact this state has had on aviation.  We have included several space themed books and DVD’s in our collection for both children and adults.  If you have always had a fascination with the stars and space exploration, come see what we have added.

The Kansas State Library has announced the list of the 2019 Kansas Notable Books.  They also offer a grant that allows us to purchase a copy of each book so that we can share them with all Kansans.  The Library is in the process of purchasing and making the books ready for check out.  We are also reading them so that we can introduce them to readers at a later date.  Keep watching our Facebook page.

Even with all the added excitement of a busy summer season, we still offer free computer access, free wifi, printer/copier and fax machine.  Let us know what you need.
