The Summer Reading program will be Wednesday and Thursday in June and July, time to be decided. We are very fortunate to have Colleen Sonnen as the Director this year. It will be an Ocean theme and filled with excitement and activities. Kindergarten through 6th grade are welcome. Toddlers will continue with Story Time each Tuesday at 10:30. Activities and snacks provided: A reminder, Current magazines and books are available at no cost. Volunteers are always needed and one year free membership to anyone never having held a library card.
New Arrivals include, 20 new Children’s fiction and non fiction books including Winnie the Pooh, Henry and Mudge, Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle. 
For the Young Adult, both Fantasy and Fiction including, Cabin Fever, Erak’s Ransom, The False Prince, Fire Within, How to Study Your Bible, Runaway King and others. For the Adults we have local author Stephen Bly’s last publication, The Next Roundup, which was completed by his family after his passing. Also local author Ivan Doig’s Last Bus to Wisdom is available. These are only a few of the 70+ books that have arrived.
Due to computer problems new books were not entered into the system or made available to the public during that time. Thanks to Greg Deiss, it is up and running once again with business as usual.
Drop in and see what is available other than books. Internet, Copy and Fax machine and Wi Fi. 
Pint Size Interview:
When asked “What do you like about Story Hour?” Five year old Liam Castricum quickly answered, “Books!” Is there anything else? “I like to take books home.” What kind of books? “Magic School Bus, my mom reads them to me. I like reading; I can read Frog and Toad.” Liam is always excited to read the newly borrowed books. When he gets back from Story Hour he sits on the couch with his brother and sister going through each while mom makes lunch. After lunch there is time for reading.  
When asked about his family he told us he has a 3 year old sister, Corlisse and a one year old brother, Tiernan. There are also grandparents and aunts and uncles in different parts of the country who he misses very much. 
He shared with us “We moved here for Summit.   Dad teaches there. Mom goes to school to teach art to 5th and 6th graders every Thursday and we get to go. Dad doesn’t have a class at that time so he keeps us in his classroom. It is fun!” Liam and his siblings are faithful attendants at Tuesday morning Story Hour and a wonderful asset to the group. Thanks for the interview Liam, so glad to have you as a regular. See you next week.
