May 22, 2015 - We received our first boxes of new books bought by the Friends of the Library spring book sale proceeds. It is always like Christmas morning when we open the boxes. For those of you who wait for the dog days of summer to read, we are now well stocked. There is a good selection of mysteries, light fiction and some great romance reading for the beach. For children, Sandra selected some new series for both boys and girls. We also received the new David McCullough novel, The Wright Brothers. He tells the story of Wilbur and Orville Wright. The house they lived in had no electricity or indoor plumbing, but there were books aplenty, supplied mainly by their preacher father, and they never stopped reading. This novel is a tribute to American ingenuity and a great advertisement for the power of reading.
The Center Noon Lion’s Club summer reading program at the library is close at hand with this year’s program having live animals, magicians, puppeteers, and a special visit from the game warden and the fire department. The events begin on June 11th at 10:30 a.m. for the 4-8 year olds and at 2:00 p.m. for the 9-12 year olds. For our readers who participate for six weeks in the reading program, reading logs may be picked up at the library beginning Tuesday, June 2nd. There are great new books waiting for eager young eyes. For more information, pick up a complete schedule at the library or check it out on FaceBook or our website at www.centerlibrary.org.
