August 2020 Newsletter

Summer is almost over.  We have another movie night coming up on August 21st.  We will start the movie as soon as it is dark enough to see.  At this time of year that should be 8 to 8:15.  Bring your lawn chair and snacks to watch a family-friendly movie under the stars.  We would like to thank everyone who has come out so far this summer.  We have had a good time.  If there is enough interest, we can extend movie nights into the autumn.

The Summer Reading Program will end August 15th.  We are so proud of all the kids who have spent the summer reading.  Some kids have read up to 50 books so far!  Even the ones who haven’t read so many have worked to improve their reading skills.  Hopefully, next summer we will be able to offer our reading celebrations to our participants.

It is not too early to start thinking about Homecoming.  We still plan to have our annual book give-away and cookie sale.  We received a very large donation of very nice books.  They are in excellent condition.  We have a huge selection of romance books, quilting books and magazines, and like-new cookbooks.  As always, the books are free to anyone on the Saturday of Homecoming weekend.  Please come see what is available and take as many as you want.  We don’t have enough shelves to add all of these books to our collection!  We would have to start a new library.

Do you have a collection that you would like to share with the community?  We have enjoyed some incredible miniatures this spring.  Now the display case holds an impressive array of antique railroad keys, including some caboose keys.  We would like to give everyone a chance to share.  After all, why have a collection if you can’t show it off?
