We would like to thank all of the Summer Reading Program participants for reading so many books this summer. The program is winding down with the final reading celebration August 8th at 3 pm. We will be learning about the planets of the solar system. Remember to register early for the program because we only have room for 15 kids. The last day to write down books is August 15th. We have had a great summer; it is a great joy to see the love of reading in those young faces.
Homecoming is headed our way. We look forward to seeing old friends and so many new faces. We will be having the book give away and cookie sale as usual. The quilt show at the senior center is a new activity this Homecoming. We will be checking out the beautiful, hand-made treasures of Thayer. We are so glad that they have decided to offer this special opportunity. Another new sight at this year’s Homecoming will be the Brewster School House. The museum board members and friend have spent many, many hours getting the school ready for everyone.
Our second little free library at the park seems to be popular. Please feel free to check it out and help yourself to a book or two. The Sunshine Café has installed a book exchange shelf which is also another chance to pick up a book or two for free. The third little free library should be installed soon as Smitty’s beautiful renovation project is finished.
The Library Board has decided to have Movie Nights the third Friday of every month during the summer months. We feel that schedule will allow people to make plans. Our last movie we held inside because of the heat so inside-viewing will allow us to keep to the plan. Our next movie night will be August 16th. We will gather at 8 and start the movie once it is dark enough.
We offer our apologies for the internet service interruptions this past month. It has been a trial, but, hopefully, that is all in the past. We thank you for your patience. We try very hard to be dependable and a service to the community. We are collecting pop can tabs to help offset the expenses of the Joyce Family. We have three gift bundles for Thayer’s newborn residents. The Thayer Christian Preschool has decided to continue to collect “Cash-Not Trash” items for the next year. We have collections containers at the library.
