Library Happenings – Registration needed for programs (June 10, 2015 issue)

Our Summer Reading Programs begin Monday, June 15, so it is not too soon to register your children. So events will not be disrupted, each participant must be registered for the program before that event begins. Registration forms are available at the circulation desk during regular business hours.
When you come in, be sure to pick up our 2015 schedule of events. Miss Cindy and Miss Katrina have been busy planning programs and activities your kids will love. They won’t want to miss a single one!
The Summer Reading Program for teens will be an independent reading program. Teens, ages 13 through 17, may register and pick up a packet starting on June 15. The packet will contain book review forms which will be used as entries for prize drawings, along with fun activities which participants may choose to complete in order to earn bonus entries. For further information about our kids’ and teens’ programs, please call the library at 743-6533 and ask for Cindy or Katrina.
Why should the kids have all the fun? The Rock ‘n’ Read Summer Reading Program allows adults to get a chance at the fun and prizes. The grand prize drawing for the white rocking chair in our lobby will be held at close of business on July 25. Each book you read between the dates of June 8 and July 25 entitles you to one entry. That includes eBooks, audiobooks and playaways as well as print. Simply fill out your name and phone number and the title and author of the book. Registration forms and entry tickets for the adult program are now available at the circulation desk.
Mr. Bond, Science Guy’s “Spectacular Science Show” will inaugurate our season of Friday Fun Days on June 19. Fun for all ages will begin at 3:30 p.m. at Erwin’s Town Hall.
Thank you!
The Erwin Monday Club has once again refreshed the planters flanking our front door. The pink begonias, white petunias and trailing periwinkle give everyone visiting the library a cheerful welcome. We thank you for your continuing support of the library and your horticultural expertise!
Spotlight Book
If you are unaware that “Finders Keepers” is a sequel to Stephen King’s “Mr. Mercedes,” one look at the book’s “blood-spattered” dust jacket will give it away. An author is robbed and murdered by an obsessed fan, who hides the loot before he is imprisoned for an unrelated crime. When the killer is released 35 years later, he learns that the cash and manuscripts have been discovered. Now the teen who took the stash and his family are in mortal danger.
