New Books, Summer Reading and Mushrooms

First of all, there are a lot of new books to read at the library You will find a bit of everything from romance to science fiction on the new books shelf. Don't forget to look at the new CD shelf, too! Both young adults and kids will find some treasures featured on shelves in their areas - look for the "New" stickers and you'll have quite a treat.

This Thursday, August 18 at 10:30, we will host the Summer Reading Party with DJ, Into the Groove. This year our reading program, One World, Many Stories, has partnered with Heifer International. The more books read, the more money will be donated to provide an animal through Heifer's "Read to Feed" program. If you want to help them out, the kids have made a donation can which is on the circulation desk.

Last, but not least, coming up next Saturday, August 20 from 3 - 6pm is a workshop on Mushroom Log Inoculation. In this hands on workshop, we will be drilling oak logs and inoculating them with edible mushroom spore. Participants will be able to take home a log (as long as they last) and grow their own delicious mushrooms. Local mushroom enthusiast, Martin Bridge will be conducting this workshop.
