June 16th, 2015 by John in Adults, Kids, Teens · No Comments ·

The Summer Reading Club starts this Friday, June 19. Are you ready?

Kids (Preschool – 5th Grade)
Kids can read for 20 minutes a day to earn prizes.

We’re also planning a full schedule of fun programs including our Summer Reading Kick-Off on Saturday, June 20 at 10:00 AM at the Pauline Evans Branch. Dunk a librarian in our Dunk Tank! More games and activities, too!

Teens (6th Grade – 12th Grade)
READ AND WIN! This year’s prizes include a gift certificate to Sky Zone and much more! Stop by the library to sign up and learn more!

Read a book or listen to an audiobook, fill out an entry slip (each book is one entry), and join the Author Team of your choice! We’ll have four Author Teams (Sue Grafton, Debbie Macomber, James Patterson, and Stuart Woods) and whichever team reads the most pages will win. One winner from each team will win a new copy of the author’s Summer release.

Summer Movie Club
For the first time ever, both branches are doing a Summer Movie Club. Create your own movie marathon by checking out at least five DVDs and filling out an Entry Form at the Circulation Desk. Two Grand Prize winners will take home a 30 DVD Prize Pack, enough to watch a new movie every night for a month.

Because of our big move, the Summer Reading Club (and the Summer Movie Club) will end on July 31. Good luck to everyone who enters!

Get Ready for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

June 12th, 2015 by Melanie in Teens · No Comments ·

On November 20, 2015… Katniss Everdeen, girl on fire, has survived, even though her home has been destroyed. Gale has escaped. Katniss’s family is safe. Peeta has been captured by the Capitol. District 13 really does exist. There are rebels. There are new leaders. A revolution is unfolding.

It is by design that Katniss was rescued from the arena in the cruel and haunting Quarter Quell, and it is by design that she has long been part of the revolution without knowing it. District 13 has come out of the shadows and is plotting to overthrow the Capitol. Everyone, it seems, has had a hand in the carefully laid plans–except Katniss.

The success of the rebellion hinges on Katniss’s willingness to be a pawn, to accept responsibility for countless lives, and to change the course of the future of Panem. To do this, she must put aside her feelings of anger and distrust. She must become the rebels’ Mockingjay–no matter what the personal cost. After being symbolized as the Mockingjay, Katniss Everdeen and District 13 engage in an all-out revolution against the autocratic Capitol.

Here’s a list of the large print books we received last month!


Silver ThawSilver Thaw by Catherine Anderson

Jeb is annoyed and then intrigued by little strips of paper he finds scattered across his land containing the secret yearnings of Amanda, who has recently moved to Mystic Creek, Oregon, with her six-year-old daughter to escape an abusive husband. Jeb is determined to do anything to make her yearnings come true.



EndangeredEndangered by C.J. Box

She was gone. Joe Pickett had good reason to dislike Dallas Cates, even if he was a rodeo champion, and now he has even more — Joe’s eighteen-year-old ward, April, has run off with him.
