It certainly is hard to say good-bye to summer.
However, there is much to look forward to for the school year.
What are some of the things that you are looking forward to this year?
Here in the library,with so many changes taking place, there are SO many things to look forward to!
Are you interested in reading? Information? Social media? Gaming? You should join TLC--because everybody needs TLC--The Library Club! We will be creating and talking about some really fun things this year! Come by the library and check it out!
We'll also be starting a semi-virtual book club. We know how busy everyone is, so our hope is to get people reading together virtually most of the time, and then, as your schedules permit, to meet as a group to see what we are reading and what we think about it. Hopefully we'll get some input from you about what authors you might like to hear from and talk to (semi-virtually, too!), and we'll see about making that happen for us! If you like to read, and talk, and create, this is a club for you! Join us!
The library will be sponsoring and hosting a monthly series throughout the year to discuss all sorts of cool topics! The first one will be about gaming. Are you a gamer? Let me know! We'll be discussing the questions that people have about games--why do it? Aren't they just a huge waste of time? How will my kid ever learn social skills if (s)he is playing a game online? What can you possibly get out of it? Aren't they just violent? You should be reading a book... Dealing with these common questions and some misconceptions about gaming will be an interesting discussion for us all! This first of our series of discussions will be coming up soon in September. Check the library site for date and time!
Ever been to a poetry slam? Well, after this year, hopefully you won't be able to say that! We're having what we hope to be our First Annual Island Poetry Slam sometime this winter right here in the library. Come listen, participate, and have fun!
So, if you haven't been by the library yet, make sure to drop by soon! There's always lots going on!
And remember, you are always welcome @ YOUR library!
